Charting the numbers associated with amazing facts about the human body, in an attractive and informative way.
This poster was my first experiment with designing in an infographic style. I took inspiration from the increasing number of examples online and in newspapers at the time, and tackled a subject that interested me. I used BigNoodleTitling for the font to show the main information in each case, as it is big, bold and clear, and fits nicely into rectangular spaces. I chose a serif font to counter the big sans-serif headings and create a bit more visually engaging design.
All elements of the poster were illustrated by myself, with the exception of the chimpanzee!
I really enjoyed producing this design, and think that I achieved the style I was aiming for in my self-set brief. I like how every time I look at the poster, I see something that I missed the last time.
If I were to redesign the poster now, four years later, I would neaten up the large human body graphic, and potentially use some of the space within the body to include further information. I would also choose a different font for the “the human body in numbers” subtitle, as this seems a little out of place. I would use this new font for the headings on the right of the poster, as I think that these stray into over-use of the main title font.
I am fascinated by the simplicity and complexity of the London Underground map. This design celebrates the colours synonymous with the world-famous tube map.
