Arctic Marine Megafauna

Type: Infographic

Support: Digital drawing

CNRS (Personal project)


This is an infographic for the article “Arctic marine megafauna facing with climate change” (Link to the article) published by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).

To raise awareness of the difficulties encountered when researching marine biodiversity in the Arctic, the CNRS has published an article based on the work of researchers Sébastien Descamps and David Grémillet. This infographic extracts the important pieces of information and condenses them into three illustrated sections, to clarify the vast subject of Arctic Megafauna.

Firstly, the drawing features a bear against a squid (with a touch of humor). This is followed by an illustration of the border between Russia and the Arctic. Finally, the two researchers and their schematic roadmap (symbolizing their action plan) conclude the infographic.

The color palette of the infographic is mainly composed of soft, pastel colors in shades of blue, reminiscent of Arctic marine life.
