Assignment #10


For this assignment we had to create an info graphic. I did mine on Halloween statistics. I tried to use colors and shapes that would give the feel of Halloween. I had to use the colors of Halloween which are black and orange.


Review #3

For Job #10, what did you do for each step of the creative/design process? Describe your process from start to finish.
For this assignment I first researched and got inspiration. Next I decided which fonts and colors to use to go along with the design. I then put all the information that i needed to on the page. Finally, I added detail and filled the rest of the space. 

What is color psychology? How can it affect a composition/design?
Color psychology is the feeling the reader gets from the colors in the design. Colors can really affect the whole feeling of the design. Different colors give off different feelings.

How did you incorporate color into your infographic? Did the color enhance the design? Why?
I incorporated color into my info graphic  by simply using the holiday colors that are used on Halloween. This helped give the info graphic the feel of Halloween. 

Find 2 examples of in-depth infographics (not just simple bar/pie charts) via the internet. Upload them to your entry and reflect on each discussing the use of color, principles, typography, etc.
For this info graphic they used a fun way to display all of the information. Also they used red to make certain parts stand out.  They also used road signs and other things to make it seem like the actual road.

For this info graphic they put the background as the outdoors to get the actual feel of outside. It has very good detail and is easy to follow. They used nice bright colors to give it a happy feel.
