Style and Concept
What concept or information do you want to communicate though your infographic?
I have a spreadsheet (attached) that mocks up the intellectual trajectory of my academic career (2002-2015). Essentially, I want to create the equivalent of a visual resume/CV but with the major research themes that I've explored as the central focus. In my version themes that are related and/or that span different topic area boundaries are color coded into similar color families. I am open to other ways of demonstrating relationships (including lines or arrows etc.), but I would like to make the end product visually interesting by delineating different themes with color codes.
Other information that I would like included (and that are listed on the spreadsheet mockup) are career milestones achieved in specific years (academic awards and books published).
What design styles do you like?
I want this to be as clean, clear and uncluttered as possible. Just an emphasis on legibility and information transmission.
Do you have any color preferences?
Not really. I'd like it to have some color differences and not be totally monochromatic though.
What data needs to be included in the infographic?
Very simply, year, position held, the research themes that I addressed in that time frame and career milestones. The attached excel file shows one potential (but kind of boring) layout.
List the size requirements for your design.
A suitable size/resolution for use in a prezi presentation and posting on a website, while still remaining clearly legible.
What is your industry?
Education and Universities
Describe the target audience for your infographic.
Job search committees and fellow academics
How will you use the infographic?
I am planning on using it in a presentation in support of a job talk - I will be using prezi, so size isn't really a concern (within reason)
