University Project: Students were asked to create an Information Design related to a choosen Historical Event.
Within this Project a booklet and poster was created focusing on the first Phase of the French Revolution aimed at a younger audience aged 10 to 12 years old. To create a better understanding of what has happend during the first Phase in 1789 the Information is divided into chunks indicating ‘Factors’ as well as ‘Events’.
It is the colour green, which indicates the economical factors such as Taxation and Scarcity. Red refers to high peaked events such as the Great Fear, National Assembly, Declaration of Rights. Yellow reflects on the social indications and blue on the ideological one. To underline the information, icons are linked with an illustrative narrative. Illustration style was inspired by Juan Leguizamon.
