Two illustrations about the difficult relationship of man and machine. Created for the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.
Both illustrations were completely designed by me and visualize the topic using a complicated user interface of a ticket machine. The inspiration for the screen were technical diagrams, which are only understandable for experts but incomprehensible for ordinary people.
Two alternate ideas for the machine’s user interface: a text-heavy labyrinth and overlapping windows. For the final illustration I chose a labyrinth with pictograms. This way the illustration would stand out visually from the surrounding newspaper text.
