Defining the content

Working with the concept... What we need to know to survive without our lifestyle today: Hunters and Gatherers.
Based on Human Planet, as a information and content resource. 
The interactive publication will have hardly any images so will rely on iconography and info-graphics. The information will be geographically located on a pull out map. 
Other content will be hunter gather diets, and information on how to survive against to odds... hurricanes, tsunamis, avalanches, desert, etc.
Branding of the publication that will be carried across survival equipment.... that has potential to be a exhibition celebrating our abilities to survive against the odds. The aim of educating a audience and making them think about how materialistic we are now as a society.
