The White House Effect

BFA Thesis Project

As we begin to witness the effects of climate change today, the result will be catastrophic unless we act now. In order to accurately take the measures to slow our changing climate, we need to learn how America failed to solve the problem when we had the chance. The White House Effect is an informational website including a historical timeline of information from 1961 — 1989 on significant scientific research, government skepticism, and censorships of congressional testimonies.

As part of the final year of SUNY New Paltz’s Graphic Design BFA program, each student must select one topic of their choice to conceptualize, research and execute. Because of my personal interest in environmental conservation and data visualization, I inevitably decided upon this topic. The final product was an interactive web experience, poster and other print collateral.
