Projects in graphic design, social design, video, sound and photography
Design is thinking made visual
Editorial and Motion
My editorial work aims to display information in a visually structured way on a variety of printed and digital supports, as shown in the projects that follow. Besides page layout, I also work on iconography, typographic prints, data visualisation and motion graphics. Some projects were done for the clients of Greenpact Design & Engineering.
Design for social impact
Social design or a design for social impact is a practice that uses design thinking to solve social problems while engaging individuals and communities. The artefacts designed have the potential to create positive changes, bring awareness on specific issues, promote inclusivity, and foster a more sustainable future.
Zines and Art books
Art and Design
Zines and art books, whether photographic or illustrative, are publications that demand a design eye to layout images and texts together to express an idea. Here are those that we made with Pataicola Art and Design Lab.
Video and Sound
Visual sociology and visual arts
As visual sociologist, my video and sound work mainly supports social research projects as a means to record observations and represent them in an inventive way. On the other hand, as visual artist, my projects are also experimental in combining medias as they intend to express concepts and sensations. Here is a selection of my most recent work but you can see more in my Instagram @thverbal or my Vimeo account.
