Infographic Posters

For this course's final project, students were tasked with creating an infographic—or a visual representation of information that can be easily understood at a glance. First, the students had to choose a topic that could be told as an interesting and valuable story for the target audience. After choosing the topic, the students had to analyze the information and select which content was pertinent, in order to develop a powerful visual narrative. Once the content was developed and polished, the students brought the visual style to life, crafting a coherent and all-encompassing visual system. Finally, the poster itself was created. On the last day of class, the posters were printed, hung up, and presented. The objective of this project was to bring communication to the next level through graphic design and visual synthesis.

I chose to focus on earthquakes, as they are, and will remain, a recurring event not only in my home country (Mexico), but in many countries across the globe. Right now, this situation is a problem because it affects a great number of these countries' citizens, leaving many without homes. We cannot stop earthquakes from happening, but we can change the negative consequences they bring about by addressing the cause of the problem. I hope to raise awareness on this topic by emphasizing the importance of a building’s structure and foundation when being built in locations at high risk for earthquakes.

I decided to create an infographic about feminism, but from a different perspective. I believe that nowadays, with the rise of this movement, there are many people who have developed an extremist approach instead of positively contributing to the cause. This creates more conflicts, which negatively impacts feminism’s unifying potential. With my project, I wanted to bust some of the myths surrounding the topic of feminism, as many of them are not true. I created a comparative infographic in which I explain the differences between what people think feminism is and what it really is. In the center, I drew a man and a woman hugging, since feminism relates to gender equality. We do not want to fight men; we love them and want to have the same opportunities as them. Men are also part of the movement and they are needed to help us achieve our goals. Moreover, I added three shocking graphics about the inequality feminism is trying to combat. Finally, I included a timeline with the main achievements that have made a difference. It also intends to show how the movement is growing, and how more and more people around the world are getting involved.

For the final project in my Graphic Design and Infographics course, we were instructed to create an infographic on a topic of our choice. As an animal lover and enthusiast, I decided to shed some light on the underground world of dog fighting.

The project was carried out over multiple weeks, and I had the opportunity to use many techniques and skills which I have learned throughout the course. Many steps that I would have previously overlooked helped me achieve my desired outcome for this infographic. These steps included: the exploration of color impact, the importance of technical drawings and sketches, and the formation of a system to generate creativity in an organized manner rather than simply jumping into aesthetics.

The course overall, and my final project specifically, led my friend and I to start developing an online clothing brand with our own crafted designs—the first of which is my “Man's Best Friend” infographic!

As part of our Graphic Design and Infographics class, our final project was to create an eye-catching infographic. The infographic could have been created around any topic, as long as it included a visual narrative and simplified data in a comprehensive manner. For my project, I chose to focus on Amazon, a leader within the E-commerce industry which publishes large amounts of data and statistics online. My infographic, entitled "Amazon’s Customer Journey," follows the experience of a customer shopping for home appliances online. After getting inspiration from notable graphic designers, such as James Round and Jing Zhang, as well as collecting data, I started to create the infographic. I wanted the process to embody the entire Amazon customer experience: from searching for the product and adding it to the "shopping cart" to its delivery. To make the step-by-step process as clear as possible, I used Amazon’s color palette (white, orange, and navy blue), as well as small icons.

I based my project on my dream surfing trip: a 15-day road trip along Australia’s east coast. As you can see, the infographic shows all of the steps, distances, and places that are involved in this journey so that the reader has access to all of the information needed to successfully complete the trip. To create this poster, I used stencils, which I had previously created with Paint, and then finished them in Illustrator. I used secondary color contrasts, such as purple and orange, to engage the viewer and catch their eye.
