Breaking the News
Idea/Brief
The final outcomes are two magazine spreads with infographics supporting the article. I have 
chosen a highly controversial topic of abortion; the aim was to create a realistic view (rather than 
emotive) of abortion, which is why I have chosen to use a science-based approach. The style 
of infographics was specifically developed so that they are not explicit, but purely informative.
Visual Language
The infographics, typeface and layout mimic a science textbook, for the reasons mentioned above: 
to create a realistic view point and accompany an article full of facts. The numbers have been placed 
in a middle of the page for two reasons: to follow a 'horizontal line of the layout', and secondly, as 
part of the modern, and scientific theme.  The colours are not gender-specific yet interesting and 
soft enough to be considered user-friendly.
