So I talk a lot about infographics. Which ones I think are good, which ones need some work. But can I walk the walk?
Today, I ask you to be the judge of that.
Yesterday, my internship supervisor, Brian Crecente, at Kotaku asked me to make an infographic outlining the history of fighting games with commentary by Capcom. I went for a bright, bold approach using Kotaku’s theme colors and round photos rather than square. I’m not happy with the quality of the photo on the Kotaku site (where we get millions of hits a week, so it probably can’t be helped), so I’m posting it here, too:

This is my first time building an infographic that isn’t designed for the school or the Investigative Reporting Workshop, so I didn’t have to go for minimalism. I’m somewhat happy with the result, but excited to build more for Kotaku and cultivate my designing voice. So expect more of these in the future.
