Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
Me_N_ChrisI'm a Graphic Design major, and we have an Infographic project we were assigned. I would love to create infographic posters on park skiing. But I am stuck on how to go about this. My teacher wants the infographic poster to have a social message in it. It can't be just purely educational as much as I'd love it to be.
I was thinking of creating an infographic poster about the style trends of skiing. I would be looking at the change of gear and attire from the sport's birth to the thug-baggy trend and now what appears to be a fitted and Hesh trend popping up. My only concern with this is how can I give this educational-seeming topic a "social message" twist so my teacher likes it. I was thinking along the lines "here's the history, decide what you like, and do it and have fun." It kinda banks off of the lack of knowledge that new park skiers have about the sport's history and the bickering of which attire style is better.
Other ideas for the infographic poster can be about:
-increased gear prices over time.
-quality of products (might go with gear price)
-Professional Level entry and the difficulties
-style of skiing(tricks and style)[might go with style of attire]
So I just want to hear your guys' voice in this. Please critique any of my ideas constructively. Or suggest other ideas that might have a more easily relatable message.
Hopefully if my teacher approves my topic and feels it fulfills her "Social Message" requirement and has enough substance to create 3 infographic poster for this entire project, I will post them on Newschoolers for you guys. And if it is approved I will definitely be posting Polls and getting your guys' opinions on trends.
Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss this in depth.
VinnieFI'm assuming that you need sources for the data that goes into your infographic. This is a problem since it would be nearly impossible to get actual data on just about anything for this sport. Anything about quality or difficulty or style and so on would just be complete hearsay with no real source to back it up. Ski companies might have price data for all their years of skis, but that's about the best you're going to get.
max...There is definitely numerical data on industry growth through SIA. It might be interesting to contrast growth in skiing with recent climate trends (decline of snowfall), which of course there is plenty of data on. I think a social message about our collective actions as skiers and the effects those actions have on the environment can stem naturally from that. Watch "All I Can" for inspiration.
