Railways was an experimental project in the context of my master studies. What if infographics would move, and become therefore untertaining, for people waiting in train stations? Three alternatives were proposed to visualize the trains activities, their interactions within a certain network, crossings, stations stops... as it would be a simplistic mind game. It can be done like a moving map, a vision through the window of a train, or simply as a quantitive "loading" infographic. The three videos represent 18 hours of the same train network.

Dear visitor,
My name is Adrien, I was born in France in 1989. I live and work in Rotterdam (Netherlands) as graphic designer. I focus on editorial design, identities, web design, poster design. After four years of design studies in France, I moved in the Netherlands for a Master. Since graduation, I have worked as freelancer and assistant to other designers in Rotterdam. Cinema and music are a great source of inspiration.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any questions, exchange or interest to work together.
