The End is Nigh: How the World Ends According to Hollywood

When it comes to infographic design we love all our clients and projects (no, seriously), but I have to admit that we do sometimes get projects that have me just that little bit more excited. One such project came about when Yahoo! got in touch and asked us to team up with Yahoo! Movies to help promote World War Z; the Brad Pitt epic charting the near annihilation of the human race due to a worldwide zombie epidemic.

The infographic, titled ‘The End is Nigh: How the World Ends According to Hollywood‘, charts the different ways films have depicted possible extinction events; where the danger zones are, what the death toll is likely to be, what you need to keep you safe and what the most dangerous professions are – we even included the number of times major international landmarks have been destroyed.
