Information design

We’ve been set a new brief and I have been looking at some existing information graphics. I first came across these three years ago in The Indepedent and The Guardian which they are mainly used but I found that the popularity have spread across the internet and videos. They are iconic in The Indepedent and The Guardian newspapers.

Here are some internet ones:

This makes the use of typography and with the use of different fonts, it has set a hierachy system. Personally I find the piece quite busy as in there is too much text and it is too cluttered leaving minimal negative space.

This features the use of lines which are commonly used in information/ data graphics especially to show numerical data. They have incorporated the lines in the typography of the letters.
