Safety Poster – Design & Illustration

The following is a safety poster that I was commissioned to I design & illustrate for First Quantum Minerals Ltd. (FQML), a metals and mining company that operates in several countries around the world. The goal of this “Environmental Incident Response” poster was to help visually communicate to frontline employees, in a quick and effective manner, how to evaluate the severity of a potential fluid spill, and the steps required for reporting, cleanup and prevention. My job was to follow the “required visuals” instruction notes provided by the company, use their photo references as inspiration, then design the poster like a silent or pantomime comic strip. The finished design was translated into over 10 languages, printed as large signage, then installed at FQML sites (see photos below).
