INFOGRAPHIC RESEARCH

INFOGRAPHICS- (information graphics) are visual representations of info, data or knowledge. This set out is intended to be a quick and clear way to present work; by using graphics and perhaps a use of colour to enhance learning and improve understanding.

The way she presents her info graphs, is a line of dates and important achievements it is based on. (On left is part of her Einstein piece- as it is very long.) This particular piece shows how many problems Einstein encountered, and this can help the target audience realise it may take a while to fulfil a target or achievement. The colours help lead our eyes down the time line, and the little stickmen cartoons represent Einstein’s story- in a simple comedic way. The colours on the line and circling his image, act like a contents or headers. These info graphs below will be of use to me as they help with the creation of info graphs themselves. The ‘How to think visually’ provides shapes and structures besides the lines Anna Vital uses- a big variety that i can experiment with. I prefer the set out of the Hillary Clinton info graph as the colours are more clear on the actual lines; plus the contrast between the colours and the background, the Einstein colours are very similar.
