U.K Immigration

The illustration was created using information and statistics about how many U.K residents today were born overseas and where they have originated. The self-initiated brief was to create illustrations which informs on what does the United Kingdom look like today, it is part of a larger series. The decision to use the immigrant's country of origin's national bird symbol was to divert away from stereotypes or any connotations, other than that having different and diverse cultures is a beautiful and interesting thing that be should be promoted. Another obvious reason being that some birds migrate and that it is a natural way of life.
