This is a guest post by Tiago Veloso, the founder of Visual Loop, a collaborative digital environment for everything related to information design and data visualization. He lives in Brazil, and you can connect with him online on Twitter and LinkedIn.
Not so long ago, we brought some examples of infographic resumes, showing how designers promote their skills in a visual format. Today we’ll be featuring another kind of work that, despite not being as useful for job seeking as the resume, it could definitely open doors and leave a good impressiona about your talent and skills.
Personal Infographics are becoming indeed more popular. Nicolas Felton was responsible for that, back in 2005, when he published his first Feltron Annual Report. Since then, either for school assignments, or just for the fun of mapping your habits, lifestyle and daily routines, this type of exercise is also a great way of practising and perfecting information design.
PS: if you want to print your designs – like for example your personal infographic – make sure you prepare vectorial files for the print shop, especially if you’re after a 48 hour print.
