Assignment: Infographics

Due: Week 10, November 6. Email me the link to the infographic and the written

assignment, AND hand me the written assignment in class.

Details: Combining everything you’ve learned about color, typography, shapes,

gestalt, etc., create an infographic that tells a simple story about the media using

data and images.

Guidelines:

To get started, look at the links below. Start by choosing a media-related topic or a

current news or political issue (media usage, film, art, TV, comics, election,

immigration etc.), and do some research to gather information about it. Using

paper, sketch out how you might organize your concepts. Start playing around

with some of the suggested platforms below to see which ones seem the best for

your project.

For inspiration and ideas, look through Pinterest or simply google search for

‘Infographics’.

Paper

A three page reflection paper (Times New Roman 12, double spaced) in two parts.

First, state the kind of infographic you are creating and explain your strategy and

goals for your project. It should include a take-away message (a single statement

that summarizes your key idea), your target audience (where you would publish it,

and who you want to read it), and why your approach is appropriate for that

audience. The second part should describe your process. Write a narrative

description of every step you took and your decision making process. What was

difficult or challenging? What worked? Was there anything you wanted to do that

you couldn’t because of technical reasons?

You do not have to include quotes or references.

Infographics

Each infographic must meet the following criteria:

*Very important: You must put your name on the infographic’s footer (where you

put your sources) and use your real name when you create an online account to

make your infographic*

* Create a title that encapsulates your main idea

* It should do more than describe phenomena, but it should help explain why

* Make sure your infographic has one clear “take home” message (be able to

summarize in one sentence)

* Include at least eight facts/statistics and use at least five sources for your

research

* Include at least 3 distinct sections

* Combine words, images, graphics and numbers

* Strategically and purposefully use fonts and color

* Cite all information and sources at the bottom

Examples of possible infographic projects:

* A media trend

* Analysis of a Current Affairs story. For example, an overview of immigration

crisis

* An “explainer” (a simplified explanation of a complex problem)

Tip! The best infographics offer something surprising or unexpected. Help your

audience learn something they didn’t already know. Be Creative!!
