In August 2021, I got to travel to Montana for a class trip. We worked with U.S. Forest Service rangers to create interpretive signage for the Lolo National Forest campground we were near. We focused on the topic of fire ecology since the surrounding forest was heavily affected by a wildfire in 2015.
Our group consisted of four graphic design juniors. It was a great experience working with them, and I’d consider it the best group project I have ever been in. I created the illustrations on the signage, helped write the content, and worked on the sign’s layout. We were all involved with research as well.
I also assisted the two other groups in the class by creating illustrations for their signs. We wanted all three of the signs to have a consistent art style. The assets were drawn in the Procreate app and were vectorized with Illustrator.

Headers, text, and captions were added later by members of Group #3.
