For eight weeks, I compiled research and explored visual variations for representing the data, as well as the overall composition of the poster. I initially had hoped to create a step-by-step web of options that one could peruse through and ultimately add up the environmental "cost" of a funeral with certain combinations. However, this overloaded my posters with information and lacked the human connection necessary to tackle such a personal topic. This eventually evolved into two posters - one describing the impact of the two most conventional disposition methods in the United States, while the other explores alternative, environmentally-friendly options.
The three greatest challenges I faced were condensing the vast amount of information I had into relevant highlights for the posters, zoning content in the poster's composition, as well as settling on a final visual style after a total of nine very different iterations.
