One of the most common forms of Information design can be found is every restaurant or cafeteria in some form or another. The first aid poster for choking is a great example of Information design. This piece is very clean, and to the point, just as an information design piece should be. The pictures are very simple, but informative, easy enough for anyone to help a victim of choking. Not only are the pictures detailed enough to teach someone, but there is a great description of each step under each picture.

Information Design

I found this was a very effective use of information design.
I like how the artist incorporates all the popular  color of crayola crayons and also makes the visual part of it into the shape of a crayon tip

This is a information design that I have found interesting of, the picture us a polar clock which split the time in to different colors rings. The simple and creative out look make me feel very interesting.

I love these business cards! They clearly show that this guy is into photography. I even went to his website and browsed through his photos. If his business cards were just plain and rectangular, they definitely would not catch as many eyes as these do. These definitely stand out.

Out of all the images I looked at that were information designs, this one caught my eye. I think it was the simplicity of the image and the silhouettes and the fact that there were only 2 colors that drew me to it. This poster holds a lot of information and it is easy to understand. You don’t have to read a lot to understand the information, you just have to be able to understand the images. This poster was made for something called The Virtual Water Project. It’s all about how much water goes into producing different things such as food products like beef and pork. It also shows how much water certain countries use. It’s an interesting project and you can check it out here: http://virtualwater.eu/. The designer of this project is Timm Kekeritz from the creative firm Raureif. You can check out their work right here: http://raureif.net/

The Buzz vs The Bulge: Caffeine & Calories

This information design was done by David McCandless, the man we watched in class. This is designed to show the correlation between how much caffeine is in something vs how many calories it has. It even shows unhealthy food/ drink that has no caffeine, but gives perspcetive to how many calories some caffeinated items are. It also shows what kind of exercise you’d have to do for 30 minutes to burn it all off. The design is simple, yet shows multiple layers of information. This is very useful, especially in a culture obsessed with their weight, calorie intake, and health.
