"If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere."
Likewise- if you can design infographics, you can design anything. I’ve been working on one of these this weekend and I’ve found it such a healthy exercise. They’re the perfect mix of form and function- it’s a small space and all the information packed into it has to read easily and naturally. At the same time it needs to be eye-catching and nice to look at, so people will look at it and give it the time of day (this one is pushing the sales of ad space). That’s the basic skill any designer needs to master- the relationship between form and function and how to make them interact perfectly.
Also, don’t tell me those numerals of League Gothic aren’t the nicest looking things.
