This is my week 6 WIP infographic and I’m almost done! I’ve just got to play around with centring everything as well as finding the right typography for the instructions. I’m really happy at where I’m at with this and a lot less stressed now that everything is finally coming together visually. Also I know I’ve skipped a week 5 post but that’s because I was silly and forgot to export a JPEG of the infographic at that stage.
While I continue to create the images I have decided to change the page orientation to landscape.
I have also begun playing around with placement and image proportions however, this is definitely still a work in progress.
For week 3s work in progress I have added an image of a man posing and showing off his moustache. I’ll also start playing with proportions soon to see how things fit together.
Second week of progress. I have added images of the tools that will be used to illustrate the task of grooming a moustache.
I still haven’t decided on my layout so I’m currently just drawing up all the images and will arrange them later
This is my first week’s work in progress snap shot. I have decided to have a dominant image of a moustache to capture people’s attention and some very simply written out steps so as not to overwhelm the viewer. However I still haven’t decided on the placement of these items.
For this assignment we have been tasked to “develop an informational graphic that is to illustrate a process visually” and to answer the question “How does it work?” with that in mind I have decided to create an infographic that depicts the process of grooming facial hair, more specifically a moustache.
I chose this topic as my partner has a very impressive moustache (much like the model in the picture above) and I find the lengthy process he has to go through to groom it interesting and quite peculiar. As well as the moustache being something visually intriguing when illustrating.
The design look I am going for is strong contrasting colours such as black and white with some red as well as incorporating some earthy more natural colours to match the facial hair, such as browns and greys. I am wanting to have some very strong imagery for this info graphic however I don’t want it to over power the text, which is something I feel I may struggle with as I am a far more visual person.
A website I’ve found really helpful to get some inspiration is Pinterest where I have created a board for pinning anything that intrigues me and has to do with facial hair and/or infographics. It is here on Pinterest where I found one of the stronger infographics for my inspiration (depicted on the left).
