Carbon Visuals has created some simple images to show the potential for engaging Australians in their country’s ‘carbon story’. The images support an article for The Conversation by David Holmes, journalist and lecturer in Communications and Media - Visualising Australia’s carbon emissions.
Ted Flanigan of EcoMotion contacted us at Carbon Visuals last year having seen one of our early images of a London Bus next to one metric tonne of Carbon Dioxide. At that point EcoMotion had recently designed and produced a giant inflatable representation of a ton of carbon dioxide. Over 31 feet in diameter, THE Ton is a gigantic air-filled ball. A dramatic sight, specifically designed to stimulate people into reducing their emissions.
I am looking forward to speaking at Ecobuild, considered an important event for all those concerned with sustainable design, construction and energy. My chosen topic for the panel is, not surprisingly, ‘making carbon visible’.
Our core design team in Bristol, headed up by Creative Director Adam Nieman, has been greatly enhanced by the addition of two new faces - Daniel Ulf-Hansen and Dave Forman who complement our existing contract programmers, 3D graphics and animation guys (yes, they are all guys at the moment).
Carbon Visuals is on the hunt for a Graphic Designer with a flair for data to work out of our new work space in Stokes Croft, Bristol.
I am delighted that the Carbon Visuals team has invited me to write a few words on the theme of ‘un-burnable carbon’. As a long-time advocate of zero-carbon transport methods I feel privileged to comment on a subject which I have to admit was unknown to me until earlier in the year.
