The project began innocently enough. Come up with idea to express a quantity. I guess that's all there really is to explain an info graphic. So after choosing a subject and milling though endless permutations of graphical variation on the data and collecting the data I have arrived here.
The first piece is based on this idea I had where a graph would get loose. Using a sample image of old graph paper to give the graphics a ground to jump off of and adding a lovely texture.
The second piece is a composite of 12 hdr images I shot and composited on their own and a hires scan of construction paper. I actually didn't adjust the levels beyond the hdr compositing. This was actually a drastic reinterpretation of a prior piece for this project. The prior piece was also digitally composited but it was done in the perspective of the original and therefore a little flashier when showcasing my photoshop skills.
