I originally did a project working with another year in my program, and I didn’t feel happy with it. I thought I could do a lot better. So I decided I would fix it to go into my portfolio. It was an info-graphic that I made, that wasn’t exactly an info-graphic. I had made more of a poster with information in an illustration. So my challenge this time was to redo the project using the content and information I found and make an info-graphic.

As I started my ideation phase once again for this project I found I was back at the same place I was before. I was really suck on how to make this an info-graphic. I had a lot of statistics that didn’t exactly fit together. So I couldn’t take those and put them into an info-graphic because it wouldn’t make sense. The one thing I did have that was information that worked together was my “best and worst” area that was more of a secondary element last time. So I figured this is where I would start.

Then I tried to think about different types of graphs that I know would turn my information into an info-graphic. I thought about Pie charts, pictograph, and bar graphs. I thought I could do a bar graph with coins piling up. But realized that might not be a great idea. Then the idea of the line inside of a line graph was a bit inspiring.

This brings me to where I am right now. I’m still questioning my ideas but I figured I should start working and see where it goes. I will probably end up changing my mind once again, but I figured I should try out my ideas first and see how it goes.

Do you have any ideas for me?
