The Last Question, Editorial
I designed, directed, and illustrated this feature narrative as it would appear in The Futurist, a futurism and speculative sci-fi focused publication.
Taking a stark color scheme inspired by space race era technical manuals I combined it with geometric illustration inspired by the graphic history of futurism and in particular Bruno Munari, while having no hard angles - blurring the sense of technical with organic, which as the story progresses helps to expand upon the concept. The circle and it's appearance throughout as both an element of the whole and as the cycle itself was the main motif of choice as it carries the story from the beginning, to the end, and back to the beginning. Highly recommend reading.
