Mammals of Lahaul // sanctuary asia

Informative bi-lingual posters commissioned by Sanctuary Asia to teach children about the mammals found in the Lauhaul region of Spiti Valley, India. These will be printed and distributed in village schools by their Mud on Boots Project Leader Shiv Kumar, who is a forest guard in Himachal Pradesh. My idea was to use the diagonal to represent the slope of the Himalayan mountains, and use colour to suggest their unique habitats, in addition to making the posters visually coherent of course. The different textures on each animal are used to illustrate its physical characteristics in an interesting way for the kids !
