Autism Infographic Research
Start: Sep 13th, 2023
To be Completed: Sep 22th, 2023
Staff Guidance: De’sha
Description: The client is requesting an infographic about her Autism research. It should be fit for both horizontal (on PowerPoint) and Vertical (hand infographic sheet) with a branding guide for following visual assets. Since there are lot of text information included, I need to find a way to well balance the layout.
De’sha and I chose No.2 as we thought this design followed the readers’ direction and must be the clearest layout to highlight experiment result.
The first draft strictly follows the timeline layout in NO.2.
As we noticed the existence of the timeline and its needed interval between made the space crowded, we decided to use a two-column design instead. The general finding is listed above the contrast between mice and worms. So the reader can follow the flow from top to bottom without changing their focal point in the middle.
Version 1 final Draft:
In this final version, I cleaned up the middle part by creating contrast between mice and worm. I also created headline and small icon to help people understand these two option more easily. I also pay attention to color contrast and ensure every text box is readable.
Illustration for Version 2:
After meeting with our client, we realized that there is too little illustration “as an infographic”. So we decided to move on some fun illustrations involved in the autism diagnostic procedure. To get closer with her children patient, our client want the style to be playful and attractive. Therefore, the color palette should convert to blue and vibrant pink.
Final Draft for Version 2
With the clear illustration, I’m able to implement them into the infographic with the new layout that flavor the balance between text and image. I used the contrast between dark blue and white to differentiate each section of autism: what is autism, timeline and the data about worms. The new flow is more straightforward about the purpose of the infographic and call-of-action.
