  • Overview of Diagrams and Sequentially Based Graphics
    Built on the foundation of research, good information design:
    1. Provides a means to see what lies within
    2. Finds relationships
    3. Calls attention to things that might not have been visible in other forms
    4. And perhaps even determines the answer to a question.


Here is a look at a number of examples to get you thinking and inspired:

    1. Infographics
    2. Visual Storytelling, Visual Journalism
    3. Diagrams
    4. Flow Charts and Timelines (sequential storytelling)
    5. Maps

  4. Next week we will work on: Phase 2 Developing concept sketches:
    • For your Diagram: Sketch and design your focal image. This should be clear, beautiful and stylized. You can use photography, or an illustration (digital or hand-drawn). Ideally work should be original
    • For your FlowChart/Timeline (sequential story) Flush out your content, create a mind-mapping chart to help focus subject. Organize all content that will appear in your sequential story (this should be outlined in your Project Proposal). Begin to experiment with how you might present the content visually.
    • Research examples to reference as inspiration. Save them as URL links in your project proposal.
