This week I did my infographic on the ERA. I made this infographic with Adobe Spark and Canva and it took me roughly three hours. There was a lot of information I could have included and pictures I specifically wanted to put but I didn’t want it to look too cluttered. This week I used a map, two images, two textboxes, and two charts.
It did not take me too long to research the topic because I learned about this recently in another class but I had to find the statistics for the charts which took me about 20 minutes. The design process took me significantly, 2 hours and 40 minutes, longer than the research because I had to make the charts and space everything out. I’m always indecisive about where the graphics are placed in relation to one another. I chose these colors because these are the suffragette colors, and have specific meanings. These colors are still used today by the Alice Paul Institute and the National Organization for Women.
