Eurotunnel Isometric

An isometric visualisation showing key facts about Eurotunnel, how it works and how it was built.


An Isometric projection is a method for visually representing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions in technical and engineering drawings. I used this technique to create an infographic poster and short animation that communicated interesting facts about how the tunnel is built and how it functions. In order for a design to appear three dimensional, a 30 degree angle is applied to its sides, using an isometric grid I mapped out various sections that would animate and incorporate typography.

Mapping the Illustration

Using an isometric grid, I had to visualise in 3D and illustrate particular areas to include useful facts. This included a pet island, with pet escalators, moving cars and lorries, and concrete sections merging to form the tunnel. Each section has a basic construction which once animated comes together to create a surreal 3 dimensional world.

The possibilities are endless with this form of animation and illustration combined. Easy to create quirky gifs from the animations within each section.
