For Job #10, what did you do for each step of the creative/design process? Describe your process from start to finish.
For job #10, i started out by looking up examples of complex infographics to get some inspiration. Then I brainstormed to see what I wanted to do my infographic about. It came down to a few different ideas, but in the end, I chose “how to make grilled cheese” because I had made grilled cheese for my sister and I the night before. Then, it was time to make the actual design. I decided to use oranges and browns as the main colors because they are fall colors and grilled cheese reminds me of fall. It was a requirement to incorporate a photo in our design, which is why I used a picture of grilled cheese as the background. After I finished my design, I critiqued it and fixed it up a little bit. Then it was ready to be turned in.
What is color psychology? How can it affect a composition/design?
Color psychology is how different colors affect the mood and emotions of the person or people seeing them. It can affect a design because different colors mean different thing and help evoke different emotions, so they can help get your message across.
How did you incorporate color into your infographic? Did the color enhance the design? Why?
I incorporated color into my infographic based on what colors i thought related to my topic, which were orange and brown. I think it did enhance my infographic because when you think of grilled cheese, you think of fall, and when you think of fall, you think of orange and brown.
2 examples of complex infographics…
This infographic utilizes a black background with bright colors on top to grab the viewers attention and carry them through the design. This infographic is interesting to look at because it emphasized certain things and its not too balanced and has some contrast. Also, a couple different fonts were used to keep the design from being boring.
This infographic uses colors that are cool feeling and welcoming. It uses ships to represent the data, instead of traditional bars. Also, some ships are emphasized more than others, showing that their data is more severe. The type is placed in untraditional places which makes the design all the more interesting.
