Design Analysis – A2 Poster

Leave a comment

The last part I had to do of my poster was to add the percentage rankings around the dial of the scales. I added this using the ‘create and edit text objects’ tool. I then chose a font and re-sized each percentage. I thought about increasing the size of each percentage so as the percentage of obesity increased, the number got larger. However after starting to do this, I ran out of room and it looked very messy.

So after what I thought was my finished A2 poster, I noticed the bottom half of the scales looked a bit empty. As this is an infographic poster, I didn’t want to add anything that was uncessesary or would confuse an audience. But I didn’t want to leave it blank.

I thought about tracing the image of two feet so it was as if someone was standing on the scales. I then thought about tracing the outline of the world map. I chose my second idea because I thought it went well with the theme of my question.

The process of tracing this took quite a while. But as a counties outline is quite roughly drawn, I thought drawing it not to perfection wouldn’t be noticeable. I grouped all of the sketches together and added it to the bottom part of my scales. This has now completed my A2 Poster which looks like this:
