In the beginning of this assignment, we were instructed to create a Word document answering some questions about ourselves. The questions ranged from “What is your favorite color?” to “What is your passion in life?” with many more questions in between. What we didn’t know was that this assignment would become a short project, and for this short project, we were told to design an infographic for a randomly chosen student in the class.
I received Kevin Weinpel’s questionnaire. So, I looked into some of the things that make Kevin who he is. I looked at the Artists he is interested in, the Designers he is interested in, the Music he listens to, the things he loves and hates the most, his favorite Typefaces, and even his favorite superpower. The less important things I didn’t bother to put into the infographic, as the most important ones make Kevin who he is.
For my sketches I tried drawing things that interested Kevin as the focal point of the infographic. After some sketches, I decided on using the one with a guitar as the focal point. Music seems to be very important to Kevin. I even decided to draw some of the album arts that his favorite bands had in my sketches. I chose ones made from simple shapes such as circles, squares, and triangles because those are Kevin’s favorite shapes.
This short project didn’t have a critiquing date, so for my final, I used what I thought was most important. Hopefully Kevin will know it is his.
