Be aware of pickpockets

personal project

This project was about making illustrations out of messages and rules of the public interior of the Schiphol airport (in Amsterdam).

Every public interior space, such as an airport or a train station, has a set of messages to communicate to its visitors: audio announcements, texts, rules. A lot of them exist in the form of texts. I proposed a visual approach to the communication of these messages.

This particular message about pickpockets is usually announced via airport's audio system in the places where the pickpockets are especially active. My idea of visualizing this message was to make stickers that would visually remind people to be on guard.
