Play Play Play / chronicle of financial crisis

Play Play Play
Play Play Play

The main objective of the diploma thesis »Play Play Play« is to show complex events of the 2008/2009 worldwide financial- and economic crisis in a simplified way. Reducing the issues to the most significant points and making them available to everybody are key points of this work. Therefore, I developed a pictorial language, based on the modular system of Playmobil figures. The thesis is divided into three parts. Part 1 illustrates the path of the money and marks points which had led to the beginning of the crisis. Part 2 contains dates and facts and part 3 lists the events chronologically.
