This project really made me fall in love with the struggle of infographs & infodesign, which is also called Information Design. The project seemed right up my alley, organizing data & then making it look pretty?! Oh I'm so on that! I took all 365 photos & collected mounds of data from each photo.
Here are some images of it when it was up in the gallery at my school:
|The lid is resting on the desk and the box is pinned flat on the wall with the photos hanging next to it.|
|Flat view of the box.|
|This was the time graph, lots and lots of data here.|
|This was at LCAD's "Best of Best" Juried Exhibition|
After taking a years worth of photos, I decided to take on an enormous project in my Communication of Design 1 class at LCAD. The project was Infographs, something I have grown to love! I took every single photo and collected data from each, such as date, time, city, state, people in it, categories etc. After that huge portion of the project was done I made 4 main graphs, Time, Places, Categories and People.
Categories: I categorized each photo, ex: Baking, Celebrations, Vacation, Craftiness, Ruckus etc.
I created the infographs then put them all together in a huge exploding box, with a centerpiece mosaic of all 365 photos in the center. Then I took 12 of the most important/memorable photos, one for each month, printed them out and put their stories on the backs.
Huge project and it all came down to this:
I got an A =)
