According to the United Nation's article What Is Climate Change, "Human activity has been a major driver of climate change." In recent years there has been a growing interest in the human activity of dumping waste into the oceans. Through my research I discovered the world's 196th 'country' - the Trash Isles - which is made up of a huge 'archipelago' of rubbish, organised by environmentalists. "It has its own flag, passport and currency. In order to draw more attention to this ecological issue, I decided to start with the medium of mass media, which has the property of reacting and guiding social opinion, and created a set of promotional newspapers for Trash Isles. I combined my graphic design, drawing and typography skills with my illustration degree. I hope that the newspaper I have produced will focus on the Trash Isles and the efforts made by international marine conservation organisations in recent years.
