102 Hours, a book created by Tank Design Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts, retells the story of last year’s Boston Marathon bombing purely through iconography.
The idea for an iconographic approach was born in the days immediately following the bombing, a time that was at once tragic, mesmerizing and confusing. How do we, as designers, make sense of it all? How do we rationalize a response from the local and federal government that was unlike anything Boston had seen before? How do we make sense of all the media coverage? How do we cope?
