Design an infographic that is as readable for people with colorblindness as it is for normative seers.
Designers often chose colors based on a brand palette or some other subjective reason. For people with color blindness, this arbitrary color choice can be very challenging. In this challenge, you need to investigate what the specific challenges are with color blindness and design an infographic that accommodates this disability.
Your infographic needs to discuss the status of disabilities in America. You must integrate two different types of charts or graphs (bar, relative value, clustered bar, histogram, line, pie, area)
After completing these projects, you will be able to:
At the end of this challenge, you will need to deliver a 11" x 17" (either portrait or landscape) infographic, an 8.5" x 11" creative brief that outlines your objectives, and a reflection about the experience.
This project is worth 10% of your overall course grade. You can receive up to 35 points for each submission. The assessment criteria are as follows:
Ability of creative brief to describe objectives
Ability of design to accommodate color blindness
Overall quality of the layout and type choices
Quality and thoughtfulness of reflection
|Category||% of overall|
|Challenge 1: Design for people with color blindness||10%|
|Challenge 2: Global warming||10%|
|Challenge 3: Wrapping gifts||10%|
Every assignment in this course will be due at the beginning of the class of its defined due date. Work that is not handed in via the method requested by the instructor (Canvas, email, etc) by the predetermined time will be considered late. The consequences of late submission fall on sliding scale, increasing in severity over time. Grade reductions will be assigned on a case-by-case basis (depending on your specific situation) but the following scale will be used by default:
|Due date/time – same day, end of class||-10%|
|Same day, end of class – same day, end of day (11:59pm)||-15%|
|Next day (midnight – 11:59pm)||-20%|
|Any subsequent day||-50%|
