The New York Times
When Nicolas Blechman from the New York Times Book Review contacted us to develop an image for their cover featuring a new book about the long time conflict between Muslims and Christians along the 10th parallel we were a bit hesitant. Creating visual commentary about anything to do with religion can be a treacherous affair. After a quick brainstorm with Nicholas, we decided that a geographic approach might be the most interesting and unexpected. What you see are two illustrations that harness editorial thinking and cartography wrapped up in an infographic-esque execution. It was an elegant and unique visual solution about an historic conflict.
