The world we live in

I was paging through an old Marie Claire and found these. I can’t stop looking at them. I love words, but by nature I’m visual. And these say more than a well written report ever could.

From the magazine (: ‘When 25-year-old Brazilian copywriter Icaro Doria and his team were briefed by Grande Reportagem to create a campaign portraying the world in which we live, they used data from the United Nations and Amnesty International to come up with a simple, powerful commentary.’
