Toby Ng - The World of 100
Have you ever asked yourself, what would the World look like as a small community of 100 people? Probably not. However, it is something to think about, as the reality would be startling - as much as you’d think so, the village would only have 7 computers, and only 1 person in the World Village would be educated at University level.
These facts are something that designer Toby Ng has thought about very carefully, and turned the results of his findings into a series of twenty infographics depicting ‘The World of 100’. Although aesthetically beautiful, with sharp lines and bold, vibrant colours, these infographics are often horrifying.
The posters look as though they have come straight out of a children’s book; is this to mirror the naivety of those that are most likely to be looking at them on their computers?
“Look, this is the World we are living in.”
- Toby Ng
this is the most significant set of pictures i’ve ever seen
Alterna-Disney Movie Posters by Rowan Stocks-Moore
Rowan is a technical wizard when it comes to redesigning classic covers to books and films, cutting deep to the core of the film in one simplified image. But his revamped images reflect the darkness inherent in the stories that was glossed over with bright colors and happy little people.
I want all of these framed all over my house.
