Collaboration with the Soil Science Department: Developing Awareness of Environmental Issues. Tasked with highlighting the often-overlooked problem of soil degradation, my role was to bring individual awareness to the importance of soil in our lives. Recognizing that many people underestimate this issue, the department conducted interviews to gauge public perception. Based on these insights, I created a series of seven illustrations, each one inspired by the interviews, to visually communicate why soil health is vital to our ecosystem and daily existence
