The What, The Why:
An infographic was created as a guide to shaving for men. The prompt was to create an infographic on a topic of your choice that provided an educational opportunity for an audience. Desiring to expand my portfolio audience, I chose to create an infographic targeted towards a male audience.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Shaving begins with an introduction to Harry, who needs help with maintaining his facial hair. By using moonlike illustrations, I was able to maintain a playful feel while still appealing to the male target audience. Using a more muted color palette paired with textured typography and patterns allowed for movement to flow from top to bottom, connecting the piece as a whole. Thicker stroke weight lines were used to separate sections and reiterate the cohesiveness of line weight in this piece.
