At a recent book event, we displayed infographics to tell the story of Judy’s four books. The one for A Step, a Stroll, a Blog, a Book: Collecting My Thoughts fell short. It was simply the book cover with a starburst showing the book’s message. Shenouda employee, Kerry, commented, “We need an infographic.” Now we have it. Here are the steps taken to create it.
- Judy started thinking about the look, feel, and contents of an infographic to accompany A Step, a Stroll, a Blog, a Book. She sent Julia, the team’s resident infographic designer, specifications: Coordinate the look and feel with the book cover; keep it simple; include the word momentum, which is the underlying theme of the book; and use action or speed lines like those found in comic books to convey motion.
- Julia got to work and provided three different versions for Judy to review. After some back and forth, Julia knew what Judy liked and did not like. She was ready to use one of the three options as the base to create the next draft.
- Julia’s next draft almost hit the mark. It just needed more information.
- In the final version, the info part of infographic came alive with headings from the book’s table of contents.
Now you know about the making of our latest infographic. We hope you like it.
