In teams today you’ll look at some examples of the good, the bad, and the ugly from the world of infographics.
Your challenge is to create the rough draft of a rubric that helps objectively sort the effective infographics from the flops.
Some questions to think through with your team members:
- What are the primary goals of an infographic?
- What genre features help an infographic accomplish those goals?
- What makes an infographic user-friendly? What makes it frustrating?
- And what relative weight do you give to those features?
- (Also, what’s the difference between an infographic and a data visualization?)
Keywords: objects, icons, symbols, text, image, topic, type, organization, layout, hierarchy, color, contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity, research, info, source, citations, story/narrative, context
