Modular smartphone design...

Here are a series of Adobe Illustrator screen shots from a graphic I created last November, showing how a new eco-friendly cell phone is constructed. It was surprisingly fiddly to do – drawing electronics is rather like drawing buildings. I started out with a few component photos from Fairphone's website, and a useful video showing it disassembling. Then I traced all the elements as flat shapes that fitted together (image 2) and began the lengthy process of extruding all the elements. (Images can be clicked and expanded) The finished infographic, complete with labels This image, and 1000s of other quality infographics, can be seen (and purchased) at Graphic News . More of my work can be seen here .
