This info sheet breaks up chunks of information into boxes to give the information a non-messy structure. Our brains will intuitively group information that appears in the same box, and read each box as a separate unit.
This information sheet makes good use of headers, introducing a hierarchy of information that is controlled by boxing and typography. Again, our brains intuitively group this information.
The bright text contrasts against the darkness of the trees, making it pop.
Consistency in design is important with a stairwell. Imagine if doors were randomly placed, or there were a different number of flights between floors, or if there were no signs indicating every floor – it can still transfer you between floors, but it loses its organization. Repetition between the stairs and the floors creates a design that is easy to use. Good job HCC.
This informational poster groups relevant information close together in the middle, and both bottom corners. The two lists are placed in relation to the cluster of images in the top and center of the page. It makes it easy to see what information is related.
This wall has elements of even spacing, a color scheme of opposing and balancing nature, and symmetry. This all comes together to create a clean design that remains attractive and professional.
Red means hot and blue means cold. Color is a pretty straightforward way to present us with information based on our prior exposure and natural association to different hues.
This poster utilizes open space in each picture to put text in. This makes the text pop, while presenting a visual aid to go along with it. The text/image combo also alternates which side the image is on vs the text, creating a palette of spacial evenness as you read down the poster.
There are many ways to implement good design, it just depends on the message you’d like to get across. I realized that practicing good design is a method of good organization as much as it is a method of grabbing attention.
