During the development and research stage I have been looking at some example information graphics posters to try and get some inspiration from them and maybe think about what mine may look like. There have been a few influences whilst I’ve been researching. These include the colour palette.
This palette is taken from my research on flat ui design and I feel that it is an effective colour palette with each colour having another to relate to. I plan to use this colour palette when creating my information graphics poster as I feel these colours stand out and go well together.
I will also be using the website www.flatuicolors.com which allow you to straight away copy colours into your clipboard and use them in Adobe Illustrator without having to remember long codes for each colour. Also has a colour which relates to each primary/main colour so you can create shades whilst still being in two dimensions and not using drop shadows.
Here is the website.
Another influence I have decided to discuss is the canvas orientation, I feel the canvas orientation is very important for the poster itself as it can help portray different things and provide a different message to the audience. The orientation I want to use is the portrait orientation, as I feel that this orientation will best suit my poster, being able to display the whole of the South American map will fit far better in the portrait layout. As my poster manly focuses around an image and not writing or too many statistics, I think that portrait will suit mine the best.
here are some examples in portrait
I really like this this minimalistic style of infographics poster, it clearly shows the stats as well as providing great visuals too.
Again another really good information graphics poster, clearly shows what the poster represents and doing it in a way which appeals to the audience.
