Infographics: sharing, previews, & feedack

This looks good in my opinion.
Matches the gold & black theme of the website.

The layout in Ali's poster looks better though.
The spacing makes it easier for the eyes to pay attention to each concept separately from others.

This paragraph seems to have weird grammar:

Remind people of win-win and its benefits increases win and keeps it win-win.

Something like

Focus on & build an image of win-win to sustain long-term collaboration

Thank you, Matthew!

That's not surprising, when you try to copy Da Vinci you're almost bound to fall short (convoluted way of crediting Ali 🙂

Thanks guys :).

Lucio, you mentioned that's the "final" version, so it seems like you accepted the delivery already.

If so, here's a version with most of your designer's look and my layout that you can photoshop as needed:

Lucio, if you want a .PSD for this one, let me know.

*Note: One of the changes you could make is to the text. It's a bit small to help with the spacing, but if you receive feedback that it's too small, it can always be changed.

Thank you so much, Ali!

For the .PSD, if you have it handy and it's easy for you, yes, send it through.

I might not have time to work on it right now, but can come back to it in the future.

BUT, only if you have it ready and it's super easy, the current version is otherwise already good (and already 99% your brainchild :).

Power Accounting

I'm looking for an infographic to put the "accounting / assessing" into picture.

The same infographic then will standardize for:

  • Power accounting: disempowering / empowering
    • Re-empowerement techniques: all the self-defense techniques to get back to "neutral" or into "green"
  • Value accounting: value-adding / value-taking
  • Frame control : one-up / one down

The power dynamics traffic light will go side-by-side to help conceptualize it.
For example, if the power accounting remains within small ranges, even if dips into disempowering, then overall you're still OK (in the green).

This is the sketch I've sent to the designer:

  • Dip = you're being disempowered
  • Up = you're gaining power / status

Any feedback or idea on how to better conceptualize is very welcome.

Two ideas:

  1. Boxing
    • Green - light jab
      No big deal. You can ignore and focus on other things.
    • Orange - powerful cross to the nose
      Letting this happen may make your nose bleed.
      Best to block or side-step.
      Then maybe throw a punch yourself to counter.
    • Red - right hook with full power from the hip
      If you don't defend, you get knocked out
      The immediate priority is to block this punch
  2. Staircase analogy
    • Green - hand on the shoulder but you don't get pushed down the stairs
    • Orange - push down the stairs one/two steps
      Not that serious as you climb back up.
      But, if you don't deal with the push, you still go back on your climb
    • Red - the person is trying to push you down the stairs
      You may lose a lot

Interesting, I definitely think this one is going to be a challenge for the designer.

I'm not fully convinced yet that a seismic wave graph would be the best design to convey this idea because there are so many concepts involved. (I think that a graph is great for conveying lots of information within a single concept and isn't always the best choice for conveying information along multiple concepts.) So, another style might work best for this one.

Still, the design that Lucio drew could work with maybe a few tweaks and an added section.

Here's a quick peek inside how my brain thinks:

The power dynamics traffic light will go side-by-side to help conceptualize it.

In this case, the traffic light analogy doesn't need to go off to the side (if that's what Lucio meant). Instead, it can actually be used to add further visualization to the message of the graph.

And, since two of the biggest concepts here are now grouped together (power accounting and the traffic light), now there's also room to include the information for the other concepts without overdoing it / causing information overload for the reader.

*Note: For example, right below the graph can be a box that discusses the re-empowerment techniques (all the self-defense techniques to get back to "neutral" or into "green"), value accounting (value-adding / value-taking), and frame control (one-up / one down).

All that said, I'm not going to put any notes on the reasonings behind my design ideas in the sketch above this time because:

  1. It's only a rough outline.
  2. I'm curious to see the designer's take so I can draw some inspiration (if possible).
  3. I'm still brainstorming a possible seismic graph design that fits the goals we're looking to meet with this infographic.
  4. I'm still not yet fully convinced that a seismic wave graph design is the way to go.

If you guys have any thoughts, feel free to share.

Mind-opener!

This is a wonderful addition Ali, thank you!

By the way, Ali, which tool are you using for your edits?

I think you mentioned it somewhere saying that it was "all thanks to the tool", but I can't find it (and BTW, that was gracious of you to say, but it's not all thanks to the tool :), the 90% is in the thinking process: understanding the concept that one wants to convey, then finding a way to put that message into an image).
