[This is a guest post by Mengying Wang, telling us a bit about her infographic project'Hitchcock'].
The infographic is part of a school project at Ravensbourne, London. The projectâ€™s aim is to use infographic design to present the famous film director Alfred Hitchcockâ€™s works and life.
Before create the infographic I did many researches about Hitchcock. What kind of person was he? Whatâ€™s his film style? I want to create an infographic not only shows the data but also fits his style, to make people think â€˜oh thatâ€™sÂ Hitchcockâ€™ when they see my infographic.
Once I had the basic thoughts about the project, I began thinking about howto use graphic elements to present it. The idea is using a swirl to show the films he made in his life. I limited the colors I use in it, and added some texture to make it feel both retro and modern. I used different patterns toÂ present different periods (silent movies, black & white movies, etc.) of his films.
From inside to outside, the infographic presents the timeline of Hitchcockâ€™s film. And when you are reading it, it feels like you are getting intoÂ a swirling vortex of his films.
