MATTER OF FACT

Because the digital changes the workplace it changes the bodies. To highlight these evolutions, we made portraits of anonymous workers out of pixels.

Rue 89 Travail au corps

Context

In its “Travail-au-corps” testimonial section, the news website Rue 89 explores the consequences of different jobs on the body, with a special focus on the social and physical effects of an always connected work life.

PROBLEM

How do we tell in a single illustration a personal story that is first physical but also largely influenced by the digital environment?

Solution

We chose to replace photography with quirky graphic design inspired by computer art. Each illustration uses a limited palette of pop colors and basic geometric shapes that are reminiscent of cyberspace but do not take precedence over the story that needs to be told.
