after working on my infographic for God knows how long, i slowly started to hate it. so i think for now, i'm gonna push that aside and start on a new project which will be the household item proj. for that proj i'll be taking a fork and making its function to be a hairbrush instead. as for the infographic, i'm thinking of throwing out my current one and starting another from scratch after taking a little breather from it.

type set book

right now i'm using Gotham and Requiem but i'm not sure if i'll stick with requiem for the text face.. maybe something thats a little less...tall? if that makes any sense hahaha. 

any suggestions? 

hopefully i am going in the right direction. i'm going for a really clean minimal look for this project, focusing mainly on just setting the type correctly.

finished infographic...for now

finished infographic for now...
the colors are actually darker, especially the background purple but when it uploaded, all the colors got a lot lighter o.o

i'm considering changing my color palette but i'm not sure what to change it to.. maybe something a little more neutral and earthy?

also i feel like the neck area is looking kinda empty. i was considering taking the stats from inside the body and somehow arranging them in the neck area instead. 
suggestions please!

i cannot believe how long the text in the background is taking. i literally sat down for over 12 hours straight working on the outside text alone and i'm still not done. after i finish setting the background text, i'm planning to darken the text in the area right around the head so it looks more its fading as it comes closer the the head. i also have to brush up the headline text as well.

for my text setting project, i am doing a series of short stories with some poetry from various authors. i will be posting those soon.

i'm having trouble deciding what fonts to use for the word SEX... 
the space around the head will also be completely filled with facts about sex. 
i tried handwriting the type around the head and unfortunately, it didn't fit will with the rest of the piece so i decided to set the type instead.

after changing my idea 102938102983 times on how to present my stats, i finally settled on this...

this is still a work in progress, of course. there will be handwritten facts about sex filling the blue/purple space around the head and there will be a sort of line graph inside the bodies with percentages of various sex statistics. there will also be more blocks of color to fill the rest of the space in the 2nd outer outline of the head and in them, more numbers on various sex statistics. i seriously underestimated how hard this would be and how much time this would take omgsh. haha.

ok so i've decided that my infographic will be on various sex statistics as well as a few interesting sex facts. i've made quite a few sketches on different concepts for the infographic and i think i've finally come up with one that i like! 

will post the computerized version later today after working on it some more.

ok so i have narrowed my info graphics choices down to either 

-fetishes (most common, least common, strangest, between what age groups, what gender, etc.)  or 

-most popular sex positions (between hetero couples, gay couples, bi couples, male, female, etc.) 

-orrr just general statistics on sex (how many times a year, stds transmitted, how many fake orgasms, one night stands, etc.)

which do you guys think sounds more interesting?

i think i like the version without the bars better but i'm not sure...

old version:
for this one, i'm liking the older version better. i'm going to have to try and figure out how to make this work.

old version:

time moves too fast

here's what i have so far:

not even CLOSE to being done and sadly, it's just one of the many spreads that i have yet to complete.


so after hours of seperating TTF and OTF fonts from the noncompatible fonts into my stupid PC (which i'm really starting to loathe right now), i've finally managed to organize them into a folder and start looking through them. and let me just say that i am DEFINITELY running at the speed of light, sound, whatever the hell is faster to CAVA on monday to purchase a mac.
