Dealing with bird strikes on airports

Isometric illustration for Decat o Revista

About the project

CLIENT: DoR Magazine (Romania)

DATE: 2011

PROJECT BIO: ILLUSTRATION, ISOMETRY

This isometric drawing is showing us how Henry Coanda Airport (Otopeni Airport Bucharest) fights with the danger of bird strikes - airplanes hitting birds at take-off or landing (these incidents are pretty serious - causing annually damages well over 600 USD millions in USA only).

The challenge was to show in one illustration all the measures hired by the Bucharest Airport Management: bird hunters, noise emitting speakers mounted on cars, but especially dogs - a specially trained SWAT of six Border Collie, four-legged agents.

Decât o Revistă (the title roughly translates as Just a Magazine) covers various aspects of modern Romanian life — social change, personal development, cultural trends, politics, and technology —, assembling an eclectic and thought-provoking puzzle.

We produce a collectable magazine of stories because they are the tool we’ve decided to use to understand who we are, and where we wish to go. Through stories, we make sense not only of our country, but of ourselves as people. Our narratives and essays are illustrated with original photography and illustration produced by young Romanian artists.
