The purpose of this project was to identify and examine the different discourses surrounding the TIPNIS conflict, exploring questions such as why is the government continuously pursuing road development through the TIPNIS? What is the long standing conflict between actors and their interests?

The chose green as the main color for the power point representing the conflict over the autonomy, power and control of the Protected National park and Indigenous Territory, TIPNIS. Grey and white were also used in the color scheme of the power point, as they are less bold. For each discourse each slide was designed to have a quote highlighting a topic. The fonts for the power point are Raleway and Merriweather. 

Furthermore, I decided to design my own map on illustrator inspired by the map from The Guardian article (see read more section). I used different shades of grey for the map as it is soft on the eye, allows for readability and allows for emphasis of the TIPNIS park in green. I wanted to create a map which was clear and simple of the reader.
