A comprehensive print and digital exploration of my design hero, German graphic designer Otl Aicher. Grounded in self-conducted research and copywriting for all design outputs, this series aims to educate and communicate the connections between the life, work, and philosophy of an influential figure in Olympic history and iconography.
I used Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects, and Figma to complete this multi-part project individually in 14 weeks.
