my final infographic

im just posting up my final infographics. Im pretty sure the panels are finished. the spread just needs a little work


  1. Your panels are looking a bit heavy right now. The brown bracket is the most dominant shape and it's not imparting any information about your data.

    Your pictograms are definitely working better! Yay. Could you use a handdrawn $ in your money bag pictogram?

    For your "When I purchased these items" spread, what does each bill represent? Is the clock overlay really important since it's actually a division by day instead of by time?

    Is there more data you can break down to fill your "MoneyMoneyMoney" page?

    A map of the locations is a nice idea for the back panel. It would be cool to see exact representations with icons on those particular parts of the map instead of an illustration.

  2. Ohhh, I see what you mean about the brown bracket...I can try to make it skinner? Maybe that will balance it out a bit more.

    Do you think I could use a calendar instead of the clock?

  3. I question whether you need a bracket at all... I think scale is enough of an indicator to imply a total. I also don't think that you need the calendar overlay either--it's purely decorative and might confuse the reader. Taking a closer look at your piece, make sure your alignments are carefully considered. For example, your icons in one of your panels aren't lined up.
