Forecasting


Studio: Beyond Words Studio
Client: European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF)
Role: Design and Illustration


ECMWF commissioned Beyond Words Studio to create presentation slides that illustrate how their Forecasting systems work. They wanted to show how they capture millions of daily observations (from temperature and precipitation to solar radiation and turbulence) to generate virtual reality simulations of not just the weather but also Earth’s climate. Inspired by 1930s weather diagrams, we illustrated weather forecasting using hand drawn elements mixed with photography for added texture.
