- What program did you use to create your infographics? Did you use a template or start from scratch? What did you like or dislike about this program?
I used Canva to create these infographics above and I decided to start with a template this time but then design it and make it my own by messing with the colors and fonts to make it my own. I love Canva and it never fails to disappoint me, I use it every week for my infographics and find new tools every week to use on it.
- What elements of the story caught your attention? Which points of the story did you think could be enhanced by the infographic?
I liked this story because it was about vaccinations and I wanted to know more about it from the title. So I decided to read it and then create a story of my own from the infographics I created using Canva. I think my infographics could be incorporated within the story to see visuals on it.
- How did you research this topic?
I researched this topic by getting to know more about Col E. Darrin Cox and who he is and how it came to be. So within my infographic on him, I started a few facts about him and what he does and where he went to college and was born, etc. I then started to research military vaccination to get more knowledge on it in general.
- How long did it take you to research and then create the infographics?
I would say this project took me about 2 hours to complete with the research and then create the infographics for this.
- What was your design process like? Walk us through why you made the color choices, font choices, and layout choices you did.
The design process overall wasn’t too bad I started with a template but then redid it to make it my own with changing color schemes and fonts for it. I then chose teals, whites, and greys. Font choices I chose easy and bold ones to read and then my layout was very organized because usually, my infographics would have information squeezed all over it but this time since I made three. I was able to spread the information out which made the infographics look more organized and put together.
