I'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.
