Infographics and Data-driven Journalism

With data-driven journalism on the rise, infographics (also known as information graphics) are an effective medium to deliver data + visuals to your target market.

Practicing with infographics this week, I focused on creating a simple infographic for… that’s right. Bananas. (Cue Gwen Stefani’s B-A-N-A-N-A-S).

Sourcing interesting facts about bananas from this article, I focused on incorporating simple icons and brief facts for effective information retention.

Icon vectors were sourced from The Noun Project, which is a great resource when you’re in a crunch for pre-made vectors.

Lemon Milk was the font selection for both the title and the body copy. Confession: this font makes it into almost every design of mine. It’s just too fab and versatile.
