Our first time at looking into infographics in my 2D Design class, the objective of this assignment "Consumption Infographic" was to track and visually represent our "consumption", our regular actions or usage of something for seven days. The goal was to learn how to represent information that will most clearly and engagingly get through to the reader. It is a process of taking in a bunch of data and then sifting, filtering, simplifying until all that's left is the essential. At this point, the key is figuring out how to best illustrate those essentials using the elements of design (colour, typography, hierarchy, etc).
