Every summer holiday break needs some stimulating reading that isn’t too taxing on the brain. So rather than the latest Dan Brown book, may we offer you our wonderful shiny new Transition infographic? It is the work of Bristol-based designer Trucie Mitchell, who also happens to be the designer of Transition Free Press. It can be printed in a variety of ways, and will hopefully be a really useful tool for communicating Transition (perhaps we should have had it printed on beach towels?).
Already a number of groups are using it, such as the photo below, taken at the recent Transition Thursday in Swaffham:
I caught up with Trucie and asked her a few questions about it:
What were you trying to achieve with the info graphic?
Most people find graphic representations of complex ideas easier to understand than bare stats and factual text, so I wanted to create a visual explanation of Transition – why its important, what it is and how to do it. And I wanted it to be without racial, gender or age bias and for it to appeal across geographical and political boundaries – with easily translatable text – as well as be simple to update and change. And I wanted it to look good!
