Plastic Atlas 2020

Infographics in the Plastic Atlas 2020 Myanmar Version

In 2019-2020 Thant Myanmar collaborated with Heinrich Böll Stiftung, Myanmar to provide content, design and translation for 3 chapters about Myanmar in the Plastic Atlas Myanmar Version of the publication. It covered important issues about waste and plastic pollution in Myanmar.

I contributed to the Atlas by collaborating with our main researchers/content creator to create the design brief and then converted the said concepts into infographics. All the designs were created using Adobe Illustrator.
