Hochnäsiges Zürich – Conceited Zurich, is a project that was developed in the interdisciplinary module “Infographics as animated GIF”. The idea of the course was to develop an animated Infographic to the topic “Challenges of the present”.
We worked in a group of three students from three different specializations, Knowledge Visualization, Trends & Identity and Interaction Design.
We decided to work with the topic of the cocaine consumption in Zurich. Zurich is in second rank in the Europe-wide ranking in terms of consumption. On the weekend the city is even ranked first. We took these and other facts around the topic as a challenge to visualize in an animated infographic.
Hochnäsig can be loosely translated as “holding one’s nose high up”. The title was chosen in reference to the nasal ingestion of cocaine.
