For my Infographic I decided to chose Movember as my idea, Movember the combination of Moustache and November is a annual month-long event that happens in for men’s health and prostate cancer awareness. In this event men grow there moustaches for a month to help raise funds towards this cause. In creating my infographic I decided to write the text by hand to define the main focus that a moustache is bold, defined and come in many shapes.
I used statistics from www.cancerresearchuk.org because I found that there was a lot of hard evidence and statistics that I could visually manipulate. I included the logo of the medical company on my infographic to link it directly to the source. I decided to focus more on the written statistics rather than percentages because numbers would be hard to read with different variations of character size. In addition to variation in character size per word I used this technique to portray the different thicknesses of moustaches.
I think handwritten text was easier to use than a digital typeface to render the variation in size that created a more consistent look and feel. I used the colour brown to render my info graphic because it was a different colour to use other than black and it represents that moustaches come in all differ colours.
