The central issue this publication explores is the relationship between Roller Derby, a niche contact sport with revolutionary and unprecedented rules in terms of gender and inclusion, and the current situation of women’s and LGBT rights worldwide. This dynamic publication is an invitation to consider socio-political insights through the visualization of unequal opportunities for the development of Roller Derby and global competitive disparity. Bold in size and format, this dynamic magazine offers multiple ways of visualising multifaceted topics.
Ambitious Cities is an animation created to make Kate Raworth's narration visually striking and more accessible to a wider audience by using abstraction and visual metaphors to illustrate complex ideas about rethinking what it truly means to thrive. These are expressed using colour and motion as an invitation for the viewer to engage with the visuals from their personal perspective.
