BHUTAN POST-EARTHQUAKE SAFETY GUIDELINES

Client: Applied Technology Council

Services: Public Interest, Architectural Illustration, Graphic Design

How can we quickly and accurately communicate crucial safety standards following a natural disaster? Using our backgrounds in architecture and engineering, we worked closely with Applied Technology to create clear and instructive illustrations to be distributed as post-earthquake safety guidelines in Bhutan. The public interest project aims to make accessible important and user-friendly resources to mitigate the impact of natural disasters.

"We worked with Atelier Cho Thompson for developing illustrations in a structural engineering publication. We were very impressed with their professionalism and timeliness throughout the project from contract negotiations to project completion. Right at the outset of the project they put a lot of thought into developing questions, along with illustrative options, to set the stylistic direction for the illustrations and iterated closely with the principal authors. Once the main decisions were made, they went into production mode and developed a large of amount of work for us in very short time. Because of their extensive efforts to understand our needs ahead of time and their hard work, the quality of the final product was excellent."  -Ayse Hortacsu, Associate Director of Projects, ATC
