For my Graduate Thesis, I created this infographic to visually communicate the flow of materials and information between people and over time, as relates to the lifecycle of an office chair. This chart is applicable to most types of office furniture, and with it I sought to condense the complicated concept of lifecycle analysis and chain of ownership and control.

The chart demonstrates the optimal closed loop of information and materials necessary over a product's life in order to achieve recyclability of that product. Even if a product is designed to be recyclable, that information and intention must accompany the product throughout its entire lifecycle, or it will fail to be recycled -- and the best intentions of the designer are for naught.

For this infographic I completed extensive design research, sourced stock vector figures, and created the drawing and text in Adobe Illustrator.
