Travel Infographic (Student Work)
Travel infographic poster, visually narrating the trip between my home in Texas and my school in South Carolina.
This project involved creating a poster which gives a unique visual narrative of not only the geographical trip between my home and school, but also the physical and emotional journey that takes place as well. 

The final product is the combination of a pin-and-string assemblage and a digital overlay file that labels the different milestones of the trip. Details such as the roads taken and food stops are recorded along the pin-and-string line, while the left side of the poster has an "energy gauge" recording the decreasing levels of energy as the day goes on.
To the left is the picture of the physical pin-and-string assemblage used; to the right is the digital milestone overlay.
 
The pin-and-string component is based off of a simplification of the map routes taken on the trip and only includes the longest stretches of travel. To create this part, I mapped out the lines and their placement in an InDesign file, printed it, then used that to place my pins on a piece of foam board. Once the pins were in place, I wove string around them and photographed the board.
 
The digital label file was made partly before and partly after the pin-and-string portion of the project. As I previously stated, I used the InDesign file to map out the pin placement. Once the pin-and-string part was finished, I took the photograph and imported it in as a layer in my InDesign document and from there added in all the details and paper textures.
