Portfolio - The Unlucky 13 “We are causing mass extinctions, including, perhaps, our own, because we’re not alone. We are part of a great web of life, and if we wreck that web, we go, too.” - Andrew Marr

Project Proposal My project is to put forth the importance of conserving important species in the world that are vital to the survival of the human race in return. I have used London Zoo as my base for helping to restrict myself in regards to how many animals I use overall and through many visits of London Zoo, I narrowed it down to thirteen animals, one from each area of the zoo. It is my intention to create and design a booklet that would roughly consist of 20-30 pages about these animals with relevant, up to date information about each one. It will include the name, Latin name, conservation status, information about the animal itself and information as too why it is necessary to conserve it. I will be aiming it at teenagers to young adults and will make the design appropriate to style and simplicity. Each animal will be given a double page spread to showcase the information and imagery. The font face would need to be sans serif as to dictate formality but it should not be overly formal at the same time so that is more likely to appeal to an audience who may not like a lot of reading. As such the information will have to be to the point and informative. The images will appear on opposing sides of the page to give a sense of variety as well as the image directing the eye to the text itself. Each animal will be assigned a colour that refers back to the map that will feature after the contents and acknowledgments pages.
The design will be simplistic and concise aimed to compliment the imagery and text. The imagery for the main content will consist of hand-drawn sketches whilst the end papers will use mark-making in the form of stencil work. I will only be using a few creatures for the end papers and they will probably feature at the bottom of the pages themselves or in the corners depending on what suits it most. I will produce mock-ups to help me design the layout in InDesign later on. Timetable Weeks 3-4 : Will be finishing imagery and Map, will be put up on my blog Weeks 5-6 : Will be starting and potentially finishing layout design, layout design will also be put up on the blog Weeks 7-8 : Will be finalising layout design, information will be completed for the contents of pages. Also Mock Viva Prep Weeks: 9-10 : Will be starting to look at printing and publishing in a tangible format. First print outs will be done in simple form as to iron out any kinks that may need seeing to. Publication costs will also be looked at and considered Weeks 10-11 : Will be finalising everything and getting it printed in final format of a published booklet. Will also work to complete portfolio for supporting work.
Ideas AND Diagrams
Initially I was going to do a narrative animation involving characters from a world I had made up. However, I came to the decision that this wasnâ€™t working and that I became increasingly aware I wanted to do something to express the need to save certain animals from dying out. Firstly I thought of just using animals in need that were from the UK ranging from animals such as the Suffolk Punch, an old breed of horse to Red Squirrels. But that proved too broad and had no direction to it all so the idea changed to keep London Zoo as the focal point, use only what animals that they cared for within the Zoo and explain how those animals deserved saving. I just did not at this point whether I how I would format and show all of this information, what information it should include and how accurate that information was. This is all part of my idea of how conserving animal life conserves human life in turn. I also wanted to aim this at teenagers as my target audience as it will be that generation where attitude begins to change and settle in. I felt that this was the best age group to aim at as hopefully any information contained within stays with them into adult life and to help them with every day life choices that could range from where the bags they use come from or what shampoo they use.
So, in order to see what could come out of each eventual outcome that I was possibly going to be using for my final piece, I mind mapped out in my notebook all the different ways I could think of that would be appropriate. a) A selection of advertisement stings using Stop Frame Animation b) A series of posters c) An information booklet d) Combination of all of the above
I then weight out all the pro and cons of these options to determine which one or more, in case of choice d, would be the optimal choice for my project.
a) A Selection of Advertisement Stings using Stop Frame Animation - How would it look? I had created a short stop frame animation for a project in a previous year and it would have been nice to expand on that. Now you see the animal, tiles would flip or disappear entirely. This animation I made can be found here : http:// youtu.be/7SKx3a_v4SA - What music would be appropriate? I would have to find free music that I could use without infringing on copyright or get someone to make music for it. I wouldn’t want the music to come off similar to the ones used by humanitarian charity adverts as I do not believe that would lend any credit to what I am trying to do as they can have an adverse effect - Use of Colour? I would want to keep it simple. The viewer only has 30 seconds of running time after all so any colour used must only benefit or add to the message being put forwards. I did not go for this because the message I wanted to get across may not have been enough to portray in a 30 second time gap that would have been available. I also felt that it would not entirely fulfill my brief in targeting teenagers.
b) A series of Posters I had sketched out a general gist of what it might look like in the end : https://flic.kr/p/dr9x8t - Would it be just one or part of a set? A set would be able to cover more then just one animal. - What would it say? It would have to be to the point and engaging. - What animals would it include? A variety, I was thinking of using their colour patterns. I ultimately didn’t use this idea as i didn’t feel it could cover what I was after in what I had wanted to put forth. I didn’t think it could get the right message across and that it had a big potential to just be glanced at or just ignored entirely.
d) Combination of all of the above It was something that came to mind whilst getting all of these options down on paper that I could very well do more than just one. A short stop frame animation could sit quite nicely with an information booklet, or posters to go with an information booklet or indeed an animation with a compliment of posters.
c) An Information Booklet Will it be one of a series or just one containing everything I want to showcase. What would it include on each page? Four simply sub-headings would suffice such as about that animal, why it was endangered, how it benefits mankind and what we can do to help prevent their extinction. What would it look like, would it be full of mark making, stencils or combined media? I also thought that an interactive version might be a nice sideline but since I had no idea as to how to go about it, I decided to just focus on what was more tangible and manageable for me.
However, this option presents timing issues and in the end I decided to opt for one option and if I did have time at the end, I could easily make that choice to add it on to what was done already.
Research - London Zoo and SEALIFE
I really enjoyed my visits to London Zoo and SEALIFE London Aquarium. It’s always so thrilling being so close to animals that don’t all naturally live in this country. It only furthers and strengthens my own personal belief that Animal Conservation is a very important business to take into consideration. Life is a great big pyramid or tree with several interconnecting branches that should one or more fall, the rest could potentially collapse. Life is fragile and man does not all seem to care about these wonderful creatures who have evolutionary histories longer than that of our own. We’re undergoing the biggest and fastest mass extinction to date and the extinction of these creatures represents the extinction of mankind. We lose them and we lose our own future. Below is a link to a video I made with clips both from London Zoo and SEALIFE. Names of the animals features are all listed in the video itself. https://vimeo.com/53456660

To gain an idea of where i wanted to go to focus my project on, I visited both London Zoo and SEALIFE London Aquarium. I decided that in the end that London Zoo was the one that was most relevant to my project.
What really inspires me is the knowledge that I am not alone in what I believe. Others have tried to express that through their media such as literature or more poignantly through film. One of those is the movie Avatar (2009) by director James Cameron. In the special features is him explaining that what happens in the film is happening on Earth and if it isnâ€™t stopped, there is no telling how bad the Earth will be.
I thought it very interesting and relevant to what I was hoping to achieve through my booklet. To get people to stop, look and take in the information and possibly change their attitudes. http://youtu.be/RjfLyGTXSYo
Another video, done by the charity Greenpeace, I found inspiring in regards to preventing what was happening in the short film. To see something that was so obviously out of its natural habitat is a stark contrast but itâ€™s a reality that nature is having to deal with more and more. Not every animal is capable of adapting to deal with daily human interaction or to adapt to use the human world to their advantage like pigeons or rats do. http://youtu.be/4XpF04nximI

Wildlife Magazine has been something I have followed for a while now through varying issues and the content in some has been interesting. Such as Bill Oddie’s usual column shown opposite. Golfing courses are one such example where effort is made to give humans a good form of entertainment whilst providing birds and other animals a sanctuary.
“The plan is the result of six years of negotiations between Parsi leaders and the Indian government to revive a centuries-old practice that seeks to protect the ancient elements — air, earth, fire and water — from being polluted by either burial or cremation.” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/30/world/asia/ cultivating-vultures-to-restore-a-mumbai-ritual. html?_r=0 Since one of the animals I finally chose for my project is a vulture, though not one native to India, I thought it relevant in expressing adaptation to coexisting and that it is possible. There is very little room to bury people and cremation costs energy whereas, being nature’s bin-men, Vultures are perfectly capable of taking care of our dead.

I found a news article from the New York Times about how a vulture was integral to the survival of a long standing tradition in Mumbai, India. With vulture numbers decreasing, there is a correlation between this and Parsi numbers declining as well. However, there are those who are trying to make sure that the Parsi don’t face extinction through the extinction of vultures, upon which they heavily rely for their dead.
I went around London Zoo asking various people who either worked for London Zoo or were Volunteers for the zoo to fill in my survey. The results were various and very interesting as some of the people who I asked were in differing fields of work.
I just found out about what Lacoste is doing for the native crocodiles of the Philippines. Lacoste, a perfume giant who use a crocodile as their logo, are sponsoring local villages in the Philippines to keep their wild populations of Philippine Crocodiles alive. It is similar to London Zoo’s Adopt an Animal program but for the wider world instead. Lacoste isn’t the only one to have started to raise awareness or sponsor wild animals. The pet food Whiskers has recently started to compare wild cats with domestic cats on the initiative that when you feed your house cat, you help a wild one. http://lifestyle.inquirer.net/49295/lacosteheir-roughs-it-up-to-save-the-philippine-crocodile This helped to spark a sideline idea to try and match a viable company to sponsor each of the animals I was going to be using.

It was a really interesting exhibition and I bought the book that went with it. In it contains a lot of information that can help me when I write my own booklet up. It was very informative and eye-catching. They had documentaries that you could watch and I watched one about the Sumatran Tiger and how they wanted to get the tiger’s genetic diversity to a more appropriate level as it would be if there were as many tigers as there once were. They had a wishing tree where you could write a wish and hang it up. They had included species from a broad spectrum, from the Irish Elk to the Dodo and Great Auk, and it illustrated that for the majority of these extinctions, man had an adverse effect on all of them. I also watched a series on Channel 4′s 4OD called Extinct. It spoke about six specific species and explained the how and why they became extinct. The Great Auk, Dodo, Smilodon, Irish Elk and the Thylacine; one of the most recent of extinctions as they have film footage of a captive
one) and the Columbian Mammoth. It was a really interesting series and highlighted many attributes of these species demise. It was curious that even though man had put a major dent in numbers, hunted and killed in the name of science and fashion, there were other causes that occurred either brought on directly from man’s presence or as an unfortunate coincidence. For example, people think that man alone caused the extinction of the Dodo and in some ways, this is very much the truth but unfortunately what made the islands Dodo country also made it excellent Pig country. The Dodo’s could not compete with the pigs that foraged for the same food sources. I think it’s very important to look at these species that had adverse and disastrous contact with man and at other previous mass extinctions, and their consequent effects, in order to learn from them and to better the future so that all species, including that of our own, can have more than a mere hope of survival.

When I was going through noting down the name, Latin name, status and origin of the animals in the zoo, I did discover a few minor things. The signage of much around the park is old and faded, especially for residents of the zoo that had been there for a long time. Their status for some animals often differed from that of IUCN’s Red List. With the signage style on the right, I felt that this was far more appropriate and conveyed the information concisely. It was this design that I wanted to draw my inspiration from in terms of wanting to keep things simple and tidy.

What I did not know is that Durrell deals with the forgotten crowd, the creatures that don’t gain the same limelight as Lions and Elephants do. Creatures such as the Ploughshare Tortoise, Floreana Mockingbird and the Hispaniolan Solenodon. It’s a reminder that even though Tigers and Lions are important for the environment and success of an ecosystem, the little guys are important to the victory too. The Lonely Dodo www.thelonelydodo.com www.durrell.org The Dodo represents every creature under threat from negative human action, either indirectly or directly. It was the human who brought the pig which competed for the same food sources as the Dodo. This is happening all over the world either through our direct presence or through our actions. This includes many of the animals that feature in my project such as the Philippine Crocodile and the Long-Tailed Chinchilla but it’s also happening far closer to home than we would like to admit. The introduction of Grey Squirrel, for example, has thrown the native Red Squirrel into drastic decline and they are clinging on to the fringes.
It’s a heartfelt animated story with a deep, resonating meaning with a little light humour (Dodo knocking off the frog, being narrated by Stephen Fry). Truly lovely. “I do assure you, that the world needs Durrell.” Sir David Attenborough
Andrew Marr’s Darwin’s Dangerous Idea Quotations http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/darwins-dangerous-idea/ “Our planet is in the middle of a mass extinction. It’s estimated that every hour three species are lost forever. That’s seventy a day, five hundred a week, twenty-seven thousand species every year, which would make it the fastest rate of extinction in Earth’s history. And there’s no doubt about the cause, it’s us” “One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Darwin gave us the key to understanding the intricate connections between all life on Earth. Remove or damage one part of the delicate web of life, and you can cause catastrophic consequences elsewhere. But we have been reluctant to listen and slow to act.” “We are causing mass extinctions, including, perhaps, our own, because we’re not alone. We are part of a great web of life, and if we wreck that web, we go, too.” Image © TRUMEDIA www.trumedia-shop.co.uk
Quotations as spoken by Andrew Marr
“Darwin discovered that many species depend on each other with far-reaching implications for our own survival.” “Even the loss of an organism as apparently lowly as the earthworm would make large parts of this planet hostile to human survival.” “James W. Tutt suggested that by polluting the environment, humanity was now directly affecting the natural selection for the peppered moth.” “We poison the caddis flies in the stream, and the poison travels from link to link of the food chain, and soon the birds of the lake margins become its victims, and the following springs are silent of robin song.” – Rachel Carson
“For millions of years, coral reefs have played a vital role in countering this effect, absorbing carbon dioxide from the ocean and locking it away in their rocky skeletons.” “In 1962, Rachel Carson published one of the most influential books of the 20th century, Silent Spring. Silent Spring was a surprise bestseller. In it, Carson used Darwin’s theory of evolution to explain the farreaching effects of spraying DDT. Using his key insight that animals adapt to changing environments, she came to a chilling conclusion. Carson dug up the fact that the pest insects were developing a resistance to the insecticide, something she described as a triumphant vindication of Darwin’s principle of survival of the fittest. She pointed out that the insects had evolved super races immune to the particular insecticide used, so that a deadlier one has always to be developed, and then a deadlier one than that. So this was an arms race against nature that man could never win.” “Coral reefs all over the world are now facing an uncertain future. With our knowledge of the interconnected web of life, we not only know why it’s happening, but also that their loss could have dire effects on our planet as a whole.”

Andrew Marr’s ‘Darwin’s Dangerous Idea’ was really helpful in understanding Darwin since I found Darwin’s ‘The Origin of Species’ hard to understand as it is written in Victorian English which is rather complicated and long winded in nature. He goes on to explain how Darwin’s Theory of Evolution was used to justify WWII and eugenics, questioning need for religion and understanding human morality and about how his theory could be used to understand ecosystems and how to save ourselves from our own extinction.
Charles Darwin, “The Origin of Species”
Image © Aimee K. Pope - Scanned Image Charles Darwin “Origin of Species” 24 November 1859
“At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace the savage races throughout the world.” - The Descent of Man, pp 168 to 169 “Lastly, isolation, by checking immigration and consequently competition, will give time for any new variety to be slowly improved; and this may sometimes be of importance in the production of new species. If, however, an isolated area be very small, either from being surrounded by barriers, or from having very peculiar physical conditions, the total number of the individuals supported on it will necessarily be very small; and fewness of individuals will greatly retard the production of new species through natural selection, by decreasing the chance of the appearance of favourable variations.” - Charles Darwin: Origin of Species: Chapter IV: “Natural Selection”, page 105 Reading Darwin’s ‘The Origin of Species’ was something I had trouble reading due to the Victorian English it was written in. Thankfully, after watching Marr’s ‘Darwin’s Dangerous Idea’, it pointed me to finding a few appropriate quotations that I eventually used for my end papers.
Last Chance To See Last Chance to See was a BBC Radio documentary series back in 1989 written and presented by Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and Mark Carwardine in the aim of visiting various places in the world to see different animals and seeing how good or bad animals were doing. It was later revisited just after Adams died (1952-2001) with Carwardine and Stephen Fry who was also friends with Douglas Adams, in 2009. Mark and Stephen went back to all the places they had visited to see how well or how badly the animals that Adams and Carwardine had seen in their travels together. Stephen and Mark’s journey has taken them virtually all over the world from the Amazon to the Chatham Islands where the Black Robin was successfully brought back from the brink of extinction. A wonderful success story that all can take a leaf from. “The message we got from the Robins was, ‘they’re in trouble, it’s because of humans, and if they’re going to survive we gotta do something and intervene in a major way’ and that’s what we did with the Black Robins.” - Don Merton

Watching it was something I found very harrowing. Many of the animals shown are creatures that were recognisable like their wild counterparts such as the Komodo Dragons. As I was watching it, I could feel myself getting very attached to the creatures they were showing. I’m passionate about animals and the importance of their conservation. I believe that without the other inhabitants of earth being in plentiful, thriving existence, we ourselves will cease to exist. I was very interested in learning about creatures such as the Amazonian
Manatee since I didn’t even know they existed till now to the more known about ones such as the Rhino and the Blue Whale but when they were looking into the case of the Aye-Aye from Madagascar, it was too much. I knew much of Madagascar’s primitive forest was under threat from severe deforestation and habitat degradation. I’ve been watching many of the BBC productions where David Attenborough is presenting such as Life on Earth, and there is one where he revisited the place he had visited in his early career and there was no forest in his revisit. However, what shocked and upset me so much that I had to stop watching halfway through the episode was when I learned that this deforestation was all in favour of sisal plants. A plant that fuels the industry of recyclable bags. I was dismayed by this. We are supposed to be helping to protect the wild by not using plastic and using a Eco-friendly material that does not harm forest or its inhabitants. Yet, here it was… plain after plain of sisal plants at the expense of primitive primary forest. I can phrase it as best to describe what I saw from the episode and I can’t imagine what they felt at seeing it all. And it did not stop there It is no secret of mine that I absolutely love sharks and otherwise misunderstood creatures. The episode featuring Komodo Dragons revealed the utter vulgarity and barbarity of the food and Chinese Medicine trade. They walked into a shop stall filled with dried seahorses, shark fins and god knows what else. There is nothing
to describe the appearance of it all. Shark fin soup is more often than not flavoured with chicken stock and tastes of very little by itself. It seems so wasteful to go through all that effort of catching the poor creature only to catch it, lop off its dorsal fin and throw it back into the sea where, unable to swim without its dorsal appendage, it would only die anyway. The utter lack of sense to it all is staggering and heartbreaking. It was only when I eventually took to finishing watching it and hearing the success story of the Black Robins refilled my hopes that someday our world will be filled with co-existing creatures, mankind and other animals. The animals featured in LCtS were broad and intriguing. And that’s not the only story of hope. Amazonian Manatee Northern White Rhino Aye-Aye Komodo Dragon Kakapo Blue Whale
Mouse Lemur and the other species of Karindy.
“The trees that once covered the surrounding plains have now been cut down to be replaced by this commercial crop; sisal, and here’s the thing. The reason that sisal has replaced trees is because we in the west have become concerned about the environment, we demand that packaging is recyclable and one of the best materials to make recyclable packaging is out of sisal.
The following morning, we’re on our way to Tsakabasyia. This is one of ten villages dotted through the forest and literally translates as ‘far from the stars’. Tsakabasysia is one of the poorest communities in Madagascar but the future of the forest rests with these people.
For any conservation work to be successful, it’s necessary first to understand the people who lives it would impact upon” “Karindy is now just three per cent of its original size and Madame Berthe’s Mouse Lemur is just one of the many species that live only in this island of isolate and shrinking forest. This feels almost too horribly it could be a last chance to see. But there is a chance for the
We’re being brought by Richard Lewis of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. A man who is bringing very new ideas to a very old way of life. Richard is working with the people of the forest to establish an extraordinary competition. Each forest village has been given a section of forest to conserve. After one year, a survey takes place and the village that has best conserved its bit of forest wins a significant prize” (Tsakabasyia on this occasion won the prize and with the money granted to it, built a school for its children and has placed an emphasis on educating the children about the importance of conservation) Stephen Fry

Once I had chosen my thirteen sections and thus the thirteen animals I was going to feature, I looked at where those sections were situated within the park. So, I decided to dissect and colour code it. I eventually used the colours throughout my booklet to carry on the theme
Section and Colour Name Into Africa Rainforest Live Nightlife Mammal End Gorilla Kingdom Penguin Beach Insect House Cats & Gibbons Tiger Territory Raptor Aviary Reptile House Aquarium Blackburn Pavilion
– Burnt Umber – Racing/Dark Green – Midnight Blue – Maroon Red – Apple Green – Aqua Blue – Lavender – Sunshine Yellow – Blood Red – Grape Pink – Dark Teal – Royal Blue – Jet Black
I was going to place the map in a button in the corner of each page showing where that particular animal is from in the zoo but I later reworked my layout and it did not look good or aesthetically pleasing. it didn’t work on the page. I still kept the button idea for the world map however as it was a perfect way to pin the names of the species on their respective locations in the world
Image ÂŠ Eliskan@deviantart.com Freek stock
The map was free stock from Deviantart.com by user Eliskan. I chose to use faded borders for the countries to help draw more attention to the animals themselves but enough to signify where they come from. I chose in the end to not include the names on the map itself due to lack of legibility. I provided a coloured key code underneath instead.
This was going to be my original layout before I replace it with another. I discarded this mock-up because it was just too cluttered and co-ordinated. There was a lot that seemed to be appropriate but ultimately could be scrapped such as the coloured endangered chart in the bottom right.
I did not know at first what the cover would look like. I didnâ€™t like my first mock up and the second one did seem to fit either. I think I had the idea of bullet holes but it doesnâ€™t appear to work. Then I thought of tracks and how organisations keep track of animals around the world so I used one of the wallpapers for the front cover. The tiper print seemed to tie in with the red theme,
Evaluation I started this project with very little idea of what I was going to do or what I wanted to do. It was when I went to the zoo with my mother that I had the idea to look into something that meant a great deal to me. There were a few things that went under that distinction but one came above the rest. So, I eventually came to the conclusion my project should be about that as animals and the conservation of animals was very important to how I felt about design, ethics and the future.
emotionally to the point where I had to stop. However, it was an educational journey at the same time no matter how harrowing the experience was to go through. I learned things I did not realise were happening in the world I live in. I learned that the future does look dark but hope still remains, that these creatures that I had chosen to feature could face a future where they not only just survived from the brink but thrived. And some of these creatures were very close to home such as the Seahorse and the Bee.
With some help from my mentor, I began to visit the zoo more often to help with the ideas I had started to pull in the first unit before Christmas where it had focused on a more broad spectrum that was more or less based in Britain. However, I knew that the important of animal conservation could not be restricted to a single place in the world. Animals affect areas and chains far greater than themselves, like Sharks for examplw. Sharks was essentially the main drive behind this project although they did not later become a feature in the booklet. I decided to choose a set number of animals that resided in the zoo, one from each section that was the most endangered or would have the greatest effect on nature around it if it was to go extinct. In the end, that number turned out to be a number that was considered a very unlucky number which later gave the title to my end product.
It made me realise that I would definitely like to continue my journey into the design world and would definitely be after economical or ethical briefs. At the start of the course, I was at a point where I didnâ€™t really know what I had in mind if or when I graduated but now that I have, with some help, pushed on through with this journey of exploration, I know I want to get out there and find hope for myself and for the world around me.
It is not so much the destination that was important to me or affected me the most, but rather the journey. Some of what I was reading or watching, such as Last Chance to See by Mark Carwardine and Stephen Fry, got to me
I think if I had allowed myself more time, I could have improved on the design aspect of the booklet but I have stripped it to the bare minimum of what I wanted with the added feature of a wallpaper to soften the blow of white. I know for certain now that I do like the hard graft of making the mark-makings and stencilling. Overall, I am pleased with what I have produced. It has opened my eyes in many ways that I had not expected it to and has given me a hope that I can make it in the design world.
