New Placard Direction

With more discoveries during this project I realized how over complex my ideas were for such a small assignment. I realize that trying to fit a info graphic into my placards was not only very hard to do but that it was not a necessary element needed, considering the actual info graphs we just made. Although it was a great attempt, in my opinion, it didn't quite hold up to what it was I was wanting to convey and how I wanted it to be viewed.
With all these problems suddenly arising during final crit about legibility and hierarchy, I decided that it would be easier for me to resolve this problem by going back to some initial ideas and going from there.
I specifically chose to go with the idea of personalizing my icons with a member of the family who would use these objects the most and providing sort of a cheesy 60s quote as well to unite the group as a family and to show each persons devotion to these objects in their everyday lives.

Tezz, great analysis of the bumps you encountered for this project. The problem of tackeling an infographic in a small space is a challenging one -- but interesting enough to keep at it! Take a look at Richard Saul Wurman over the summer - per your interest in infographics.

As for this new direction. I think you're on to something here. Visually appealing and actually a bit disturbing. The individual components are there, so perhaps over the summer you can continue investigating overall composition and the element of time...?
