Illustrated to tell the story of how digital technology is fulfilling the role of the new industrial revolution, it was clear that it needed to be conceptual, not specific. As can be seen in the concept sketches, the story could easily be misrepresented by the image. The gear and robotic hands were chosen to represent the passing of old technology to new while suggesting the evolution of technology as well.
