The image to the right is an infographic I designed last semester. Notice the following:
- there is one central image
- other images have been added to help the viewer visualize the information
- this particular infographic is statistic-based
You can see other examples of infographics here. Notice how the infographics:
- use the entire page (thus, they are very different from poster boards)
- show relationships between facts and figures. A lot is going on, but the pieces still feel unified.
- provide the viewer with an overall understanding of the topic
Thus, I’d like you to apply the following to your infographic:
- Avoid dead space (again, avoid the poster board look featuring a few images slapped onto the page)
- Choose a strong central image. This image should reflect Egyptian life.
- Include images, facts, and details. Use words and graphics (arrows, etc) to connect them.
- Identify the central idea you wish the viewer to take away from your infographic. Make sure that everything in your infographic connects to your central idea.
