Design Research

01

For this project, I immerse myself in the challenge of turning information into images. The topic is Elon Musk because I really admired his innovative achievement and contribution to society, and I want to inform the audience of his accomplishments. Going off that, I researched him and create four different models in my infographic: relationship, time, number and location.

Color

These complementary colors match well with the overall feel of the information graphic. Orange and blue are bright and give a sense of energetic and interesting feeling.

Typography 

03

Futura has an appearance of efficiency and forwardness. The font is used extensively in the instrument panel graphics within automobiles in aviation for instruments and control legends. NASA used Futura frequently during the Apollo space program, with charts, technical documents, and spacecraft instrumentation labels all making use of the typeface. I used this font for its futuristic and technological feelings that match really well with Elon Musk's characteristics.

Reflection

06

In this project, I learned about the power of iterations. For each section, I explore multiple different ways to present sets of data and make them more visually appealing to the users. Also, receiving critique from my peers also provide different perspectives in revising the details. I want to make my infographic have consistency and visual hierarchy.
