The Weapons’ Reputation. An Investigation into the Geopolitics of Arms Trade was made as a Master thesis in Information Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven, 2020. Sequel Sans is used throughout in a single weight.
The project questions the integrity of the arms trade as legal commerce of tools of warfare. Every conventional weapon is produced and sold with a license; nonetheless, there is an enormous lack of responsibility among those who work in the defence industry. As a case study, the ongoing conflict in Yemen (2015-present) is examined through the type of weaponry employed. The research has been translated into a 17 minutes film, extended by a repository of weapons employed in the conflict. The repository is available online at weaponsreputation.com.
