Sleep Infographic

Overview: This project challenged us to design an infographic depicting an activity that consumed a lot of our time.

Problem: The graphic had to point to the overall theme of the activity in addition to breaking down the information into a design that is easy to read and comprehend.

Solution: I chose to document the amount of time I had spent asleep. I used a color scheme indicative of sleep and a simple sans serif typeface to keep the graphic simple and minimize unnecessary noise. I also used gradients within the graphic itself to soften the overall feel.

Result: The infographic is clean and simple for ease of reading and comprehension. The colors and type work together to create a tranquil, serene feel to the graphic. The circular nature of the graphic mimics the moon and the stars help to push this story further and create a cohesive design.
