Description: In this project, I work on an infographic that helps people understand APPLE – history, gene, current status…
Here is my first draft of apple infographic with available information via the article Apples of Eden: Saving the Wild Ancestor of Modern Apples.
I primarily using graphics (Column Graph and Pie Graph) to showcase any number associated information and name tag to label the location of ancestors. I also used the cut apple slice to represent different types of apple
I realize that the color scheme of looks a little bit dirty and the illustration style didn’t match with the rest of graphic elements. Meanwhile, the composition tends to lead me into the right side because of the heavy blocks. In the second version, I revised the layout by re-arranging them and drew the color with a more clean and fresh color palette. I discovered the spray and symbol features in illustrator. The spray features makes the spots on apples scatter more randomly, adding texture to the illustration.
