Google News Initiative — Shifts in Media Consumption

illustration, print | 2018
client: Google News Initiative
research: Marketcolor
project management: Theo Casey

We worked with Marketcolor to illustrate two pieces in a Financial Times Paid Post produced in collaboration with Google about the Digital News Innovation Fund.

This piece was a timeline chronicling major landmarks in communications, media consumption and journalism in the last 20 years.
