Article Header Design: “Apocalypse in the Red Sea”


The Context

⭕ This is the design I created for The Red Team Analysis Society article [🇬🇧 🇫🇷] titled :

“Apocalypse in the Red Sea”

In December 2023 the Pentagon launched “Operation Prosperity Guardian in the Red Sea” in order to protect trade routes constantly attacked by the Houthi movement; the latter having joined the Palestinian cause following the Israel Defenses Force attacks in the Gaza Strip.

This political-religious conflict impacting strongly on global geopolitics -whether at an economic, strategic, political or ideological level – this article focuses on the strategic action of the Houthis in the Red Sea and how their actions spread over the world way beyond this sector.

The Design

The colors of Yemen’s Flag are White, Red and Black.

White is the leaden sky, announcing the storm of an upcoming globalized War, with unsuspected repercussions.

The silhouette of a Black ship looms on the horizon -so calm before the storm… Is it the menacing black of an American warship, the next herald of the war to come? Is it the black vessel of the Houthi movement which will be the spearhead of a new piracy of the 21st century, capable of shaking the very foundations of civilization? Or is it a prey ship, bearing the future mourning of its crew and cargo, wandering like a ghost ship on such a calm sea…

A sea so calm and so Red. Red like the Red Sea. Red like blood. Blood of the Martyrs? Blood of the Innocents? Blood of the Warriors?

In this deceptively calm sea, the ship is reflected in its waters and forms the silhouette of an AK-47, announcing the stake of this future conflict: is it the universal weapon of all terrorists or the one of all freedom fighters?

This weapon of asymmetrical warfare now forms a symmetrical reflection on the ship… the lines and ideologies blur and mix, the scale changes and ideologies vary… Who to believe and who not to believe? What reflection do we see in the mirror when it is tinted with the color of blood?

Is the ship now the new universally accessible weapon that threatens the fragile balance of a reduced globe? Or is it the spearhead of a new world? The announcement of a new order?

But whatever happens, the Blood will always remain the same color…
