During my internship at envision+ I was responsible for the Illustrations in The Mindful International Manager by Jeremy Comfort and Peter Franklin. I also illustrated the cover-artwork. The concept was to get away from the visual language many manager books use and thus punctuate the content of the book, which is about leaving known trails and learn to understand other cultures and languages. The vectorized plants were used as a metaphor for the different situations and people an international manager faces and works with. More about the book itself and the two authors can be found on the official website at www.themindfulinternationalmanager.com
Competences for Working Effectively across Cultures
Unlike many successful managers working in their home environment, mindful international managers focus in particular on the context and process of communication and cooperation as well as on outcomes. They work hard to create understanding— Jeremy Comfort and Peter Franklin
when managing and working with people from cultures different from their own. The knowledge and competences you need to do this effectively are what this book is about.
I animated this unofficial Trailer from the data I had generated for the book »The Mindful International Manager« during my time at design studio envision+.
