Government Whistleblowers

Student Work, Jan 2017 – May 2017

After my work on Think Before You Vote, I wanted to explore more controversial topics. The assignment was simple: Make a 5 spread brochure on 5 things that have something in common using existing imagery. I naturally looked to the news. The Wikileaks emails from John Podesta was a reoccuring story at the time. Their uncovering was a divisive issue and so I saught to detail 5 influential government whistleblowers of the last 50 years.

The narrative for each whistleblower isn't your typical story. It's not a hero's tale or a hit-piece. It's a timeline of events. Thinking about the period in which these whistleblowers came to light, the typical media consumption of the time, and the types of documents and/ or recordings that were leaked all informed the imagery used and how each timeline would be represented.
