The development of The Lazarus Effect is based on the theme of the Lazarus-Effect, as coined by paleontologist David Jablonski. This pertains to the unintentional rediscovery (by accident, through expedition or through relocation projects) of a previously lost or considered extinct form of life. The project is a multimedia awareness campaign using black and white vector illustrations of representatives from flora and fauna that are currently subject to the Lazarus-Effect. The illustration of the German Lazarusse should act as the visual key of the campaign and unite all components. The large prints attract attention, you can't overlook them. The black and white vector style combines the different media parts of the campaign. At the tall buildings they look admonishingly at the viewer. They were considered extinct by humans and returned as symbol of warning.
The black and white illustrations of “Schlachtfeld Wildnis“ are the basics for the detailed vector-work illustration campaign, with a deep social background of illegal waste disposal. Lara Wilkin intend from an illustrativ and visual point of view the processing who is based on the animal representative characters, in order to arouse the viewer`s curiosity as well as to make his exploring insight possible. In the conception, the typography positions are subordinated and are being faced with the picture-objects, the typography is used as an informative topic supplement. The design resisted the exclusive typographical visualization because in the opinion social and environmental issues only leave a lasting impression by visualization.
