For my topic, Sloth, I chose to focus on typography and how the art of creating type has dwindled from artistry to simplicity. I chose to animate how a Blackletter ‘S’ would would sketched out, inked, and then filled in. Then it transforms to a computer screen with a cursor blinking to spell out the word ‘sloth’ in sans-serif type. This represents how typography has gone from a full-time occupation to a thing we all take for granted. Generations today who use technology don’t realize the time and effort it takes to create a typeface and how it affects our daily lives. The end takes you to a youtube link about the history of typography, which I think is appropriate for the importance of typography.

For this infographic, I chose to showcase the mass differences between the average income rates between New York state and  Syracuse area. For the beginning portion, I chose to do a small introduction between the U.S., New York state and Syracuse. Each area is represented by a different opacity of red. At the end, the infographic allows the user to click on one of the three topics to go back and view the specific topic again.

For this doodle animation, I chose to represent my favorite actress Audrey Hepburn. I chose to represent all the places her movies have taken place and showcase a silhouette of her little black dress. The green vespa is an iconic image taken from her first big role in ‘Roman Holiday’ and I used it to represent her travel spree from Rome to Paris to London and then New York City.

Infographic: Undergraduates for Better Education

My infographic shares the information the group Undergraduates for Better Education gathered by conducting surveys focusing on student’s Syracuse Education. The data I selected from the study is separated into three pie charts, each with a different focus. The three topics are how enthusiastic professors are in the classroom, how many options the students felt they had for selecting classes and how students evaluated teacher’s assistants.

The challenge I faced when it came to depicting education was representing it in a manner that is not over done. Because of this I opted to style my graphic in a clean, modern manner. For typography I choose the two typefaces Brandon and Chronicle. They compliment each other well in that they contrast styles. As for color selection, I wanted to have fun with the color scheme to bring some life and energy into my project, otherwise it would easily get too dry.

Floor, bricks, light-post animate in. Light starts to blink making the man and shadow visible/unvisable. Then they stay on and the shadows cape starts to wave!

My infographic is an interactive timeline illustrating the history of prehistoric sharks, starting from 455 Million years ago up until today. When the user clicks on one of the orange buttons, a box of information comes up.

Design strategy  I chose to do sharks because I love them and wanted to share more information about them with others. I also found it an interesting topic to research. The design is clean and visually appealing while still allowing the information to be shared with the viewer.

Type  Univers LT Std  |  Color  blues, black, orange, white

What I learned  I learned how to create buttons and make an object animate in using the coding panel. I also feel more comfortable with Edge than I did after the first project because I tried to play around with things.
