Make your data beautiful; turn it into an infographic. Infographics make complicated information easily understandable and visually compelling. In this course, Nigel French memorializes the soldiers and events of World War I, but you can use these lessons to build almost any kind of infographic. Learn how to use Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and Excel together to analyze and chart the data, plot locations on a map, and build a timeline that simply details a complex sequence of events. Along the way, Nigel explains how to choose fonts and color, create a background image, and finally convert your print graphic into a format suitable for websites.
Hey, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to this project based course on Designing and Infographic. 2014, marks the centenary of World War one, a cataclysmic event in history of one that has profoundly shaped our world. For that reason, as we commemorate the events of 100 years ago, I've chosen to make the first World war the subject of my infographic. Of course, the techniques we'll be exploring can be adapted to any kind of infographic.
Using Adobe Illustrator with help from Adobe PhotoShop, Adobe InDesign, and Microsoft Excel, we'll look at how we can use maps,how to represent data in ways that are easy to digest, and visually compelling. How to explain a complicated sequence of events and how we can situate concurrent events on a timeline and in some small way, tell the stories of those who experienced these time. We'll also see how to set up the document,manage the project, choose type and color, and create a background image.
Finally, I'll show how we can convert our print infographic to a screen infographic, suitable for use on a website. Let's get started.
