This Infographic for the Department of Energy accompanied the final version of their newsletter and was used to draw more attention to their contract ending accomplishments. For this graphic I did all the research to identify what statistics viewers felt were most important. This meant identifying the content, designing a few preliminary options and finally testing those options with each of 3 focus groups to see which layout identified best with the groups.
For the design I utilized the Recovery.gov logo to brand the graphic utilizing the same colors and "pie chart" look of the logo brand the graphic and lead screen. The layout was set up for 1024x768 so that each section fits within the most widely used screen resolution, which 80% of the time is still 1024x768. As the user scrolls the graphic online each section will display nicely within their monitor.
