Visualizing Urban Solutions: De-Sealing and Cooling Urban Areas

Urban heat islands happen in cities when the ground is covered in a way that water can't go through it. This makes problems like overheating and heavy rain flooding even worse.

Gerophyt, a civil engineering company specializing in urban landscaping, is trying to fix these problems by getting rid of the ground covering. They want to make cities more comfortable by creating shaded and cooler places.

They approached us to design website banners showcasing their various areas of expertise. Our work involved creating visuals that invite exploration, while also capturing the complexity of urban landscapes. The color palette aligns with the company's corporate design, maintaining a professional and engineer-friendly tone.
