Infographic styles

Friday, May 8th, 2015

For my WIP this week, I have been looking at infographics and trying to decide on what kind of look or style I prefer.

When looking at these examples, I have to bear in mind that we do have restraints that our infographic has to be A4 size. Another constraint to take into consideration is that we can not use any images in our piece, it must all be vector-based. This rules out some of the styles I like below, where real images are incorporated into the design.

From https://www.behance.net/gallery/Design-x-Food-Infographic/8859589 I love the simplicity of the colours and the use of pale colours. I also like the way they have arranged the food as visual pie charts

From https://www.finedininglovers.com/blog/food-drinks/recipe-for-apple-pie/  I love the idea of using a chalkboard design, it fits really well with the infographic being a recipe. The colour scheme is simple and is very visually appealing

From http://healthandstyle.com/health/how-to-make-a-salad/ I really like the use of colour in this and the layout of using the bowl to contain the information.
