I used Canva again for this weeks Infographic Story since I’ve worked with it several times in the past. I started from scratch and did not use a template. I’ve found that templates are only helpful for certain assignments. I really like this program because I know how to navigate it well and I like the themes that they provide as well as the infographic template size.
I thought that the part where the article explains that some military members need up to 17 vaccines. I did not know that and thought that this information could be expanded more. So, I decided to research what vaccines are enforced and what vaccines are recommended for some.
I researched this topic through a couple different sources. I used Newsweek and Military.com for my first infographic since I did not know much about this topic at all, it was refreshing to learn new information. Then, for my second infographic I used The Official Website of the United States Marine Corps to research the Commanding Officer. For the last infographic, I just used what was provided within the article. My overall research took about an hour to complete and the infographics took around two hours making it a total of three hours to complete everything.
As far as my design process, I was testing out different themes until I came to an army green color that I thought was fitting for this topic. Then I chose the fonts again through a different theme and the graphics came from Canva and I placed them where I thought they were necessary.
