We came up with the proposal for the Daily Maverick of a weekly infographic feature. We wanted to take the DM's style of reporting and present a story visually. The process required us to act not only as designers and illustrators but as journalists in the sense that we needed to wade through a lot of information to find the real meat of the story. With the infographic covering tracking in the Karoo, we honed in on water as being the central issue particularly as these wells are being built in a region with notoriously low rainfall. Where the water is sourced from, the amount required and what happens to the water afterwards are important topics.
