Here’s my isotope. NOTE: It has some weird loading problem that I can’t fix, so you have to click in the url box and just press ENTER (NOT the refresh button, it doesn’t do anything). It’s being a pain but you should be able to see all the images after that. Sorry!

I didn’t know if we were supposed to do both an image design and the isotope itself, so I’m just doing the isotope. Because aren’t #2 and #3 for the homework kind of the same thing? Well I think so, so yeah there’s that.

I’m critiquing Ted’s infographic from the beginning of the semester. You can see it again here. I think it is one of the most successful infographics out of the class. First off, the images he made were simple but clear, and in themselves looked like abstract art, which I enjoyed. Also, the idea to have all these colored pieces come together in the end was unique and fun to see. It closed the project nicely and helped to connect all the information that was throughout his slides. He definitely spent time on it and it looks nice. The only thing I didn’t like at first was that on the first slides, I didn’t understand the purpose of showing the filled circles, but I was able to figure it out. To be extremely nit-picky, in the last slide, the color pieces don’t line up with others in some spots (looking at the circles), but they do in the beginning of the project. I’m only saying that because I don’t see anything else that needed major improvements. If it were my project (and I wish it was!), I would try using a few of the colors in the title “Ted’s Life” or in the slides throughout, like the hours of the activities or the percentage information, just to see what it looks like. It would be to just get some more color in the text, because the grey and white are a little monotonous. However, I don’t think this is necessary because it succeeds without.
