During the summer of 2016, I considered a site specializing in HTML5 animation that would tell involved stories, like the best comic books. I actually got it up and running. It was noticed by editors from Pearson Education, who also saw my LinkedIn profile, which at the time featured my specialization in infographics. This led to my designing and submitting three illustrations for the revision of their textbook, Technology in Action.
This infographic posed an interesting problem. Themed to the “Internet of Things,” it was presented to me with clear plans for the first item, but in need of a second half. I proposed that, since the Internet of Things is made possible because of greater availablilty of IP addresses, I researched a ratio of IP addresses per living person from the beginning of the Internet till today. They approved, resulting in this admittedly text-heavy graphic.
Adobe Illustrator. Maybe two open-source vector icons. Client’s choice of typeface.
