Project Description

You will develop an infographic with at least 10 years of data that will include a secondary breakdown layer of data.

This class is for anyone that would love to explore a niche market of graphic design and learn to do work with two data sets to produce an infographic. I will take you through the research, icon development, sketching and layout, electronic development and finally incorporating color.

You may use the data I have provided or feel free to find your own data.


  1. Work through each of the steps to create your graphic.
  2. Post your project in the project gallery with your process so everyone can help each other with their progress and provide constructive criticism.
  3. Feel free to post any questions in the community section of this class.
