State of the World's Plants
As Head of Design at Numiko I got the opportunity to do some awesome stuff. This is one of those things. Kew Gardens is well known as a beauitful public garden. What people don't know is they have hundreds of botanical scientists travelling the world, analysing data, and doing an awesome job of documenting the worlds plants. I had been to Kew Gardens a few times as a general member of the public and had no idea. Getting inside the archive and seeing the work that goes on behind the scenes was a real treat.
As with all projects this was a collaboration of the best minds we could find. I did a lot of the initial setup and concept designs, Daniel Wilson did the finer detail work on the design, dealt with the real data and ironed out the kinks, and Jamyes Hyatt who nailed the technical side of things. Go team!
The above animation is an after effects prototype. Created to bring to life initial concept designs for the client - and also to have discussions internally with developers.
