JOUR 345 Infographic, designed by Elliott DeRose, Class of 2021.

Assignment Details: This particular assignment required students to create an infographic with a large illustration as the main piece of the graphic. Students had to illustrate a process and then have at least three other pieces of information within the infographic.

“I have grown up idolizing National Geographic and the incredible work they do there, so I decided I wanted my work to emulate what they do for their infographics. I wanted to use them as inspiration. I also personally know a lot about Whale Sharks because I think they are fascinating creatures and turned this assignment almost into a passion project and just ran with it.” – Elliott DeRose
