Halloween By The Numbers

Halloween By The Numbers

Halloween is less than week away and many children are ready to get dressed up and go out trick or treating. This infographic breaks down all of the different numbers about Halloween including how many Americans participate and just how much we spend on all that candy.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B

The design for this infographic definitely has the Halloween feel with images familiar that are familiar at Halloween time. I like that there are different scenes that break up the infographic and showcase different information. The title is big and right from the beginning readers will know what the infographic is about. The font that some of the text is in has a creepy scary look to it as well which again adds to the Halloween theme.

Infographic Information: B

The information was interesting and shocking to see. I think the biggest shock to read was how much Americans will spend on Halloween. I also liked the chart that broke down where people get costumes ideas from. The majority got them from the stores while my favorite place to get a costume idea is from pop culture. I was surprised to see such a low number of Americans actually take their kids trick or treating. I thought this number would have been higher as it seems so many children enjoy trick or treating. I think overall the information is interesting to read about.

10 Most Annoying Co-Worker Habits

Infographic Review

Infographic Design:  B

The design of this infographic bright and has a humorous cartoon look to it. I like the different characters that show the different annoying habits. I like that the character from The Office was incorporated into the infographic giving funny quotes throughout.

Infographic Information: B

The information is fun to read and even validates some of the habits that readers may find annoying. The information that readers can take away is that all of these habits can cost the company money in the long run. This infographic is a fun and easy read that will allow readers to see that they are not alone in being annoyed by their co-workers.

Lucky and Unlucky Numbers

Lucky and Unlucky Numbers

Infographics1

Infographic Review

Infographic Design:  B

The design for this infographic is a map of the world that shows little boxes pointing to the countries with their respective lucky and unlucky numbers. I think this was a good way to show the different numbers so that you could actually see where around the world the numbers are different.  I like that there is  an explanation about the numbers in each area. The only issue I do have is that it is visually boring to look at . The colors and text blend into each other and the only thing that really stands out are the numbers.  I think it would have been nice to color code the numbers to match their respected regions on the map. Other than that I think the infographic has a nice map design to help readers better understand the regions of the numbers.

 

Infographic Information: B

The information seems to give exactly what the title suggests. The lucky and unlucky numbers are shown for different areas around the world and a little snippet about why those numbers are lucky are unlucky are included. Other than that there is not much else to read about. I think adding a little more information about what the people of the different areas use the numbers for and maybe included a graph that showed a list of the most popular lucky and unlucky numbers. These of course are just suggestions because I just felt like something more could have been added to the information.

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B+

Writing an infographic means that you need to make sure you include lots of colors. This infographic did a great job of making the infographic colorful and fun to read. I think that the title looked good with every letter being a different color which went will with the information. The sections are clearly defined by each color and the images in each section went well with the attitude of the color. The format for each color is the same which gives a uniform feel to the infographic making it look clean. The light grey background behind each color section allow for the color being discussed to standout. The design of this infographic was clearly given a lot of thought and that is easy to see.

 

Infographic Information: B

A color does say a lot about who you are and the information about each color gives readers a clear understanding of what the color portray. I think that most of the information about each color made sense to me especially saying that red meant aggressive because I can see that being true. While this does not mean that you are aggressive because you wear read but it sends the message to others that you are. So this information can be important for dates, interviews, and nights at the bar because you can dress in a certain color to portray yourself differently. I thought the information was useful for everyone and makes you think twice before you put on your clothes.

How-To-Smoke-A-Cigar-infographic

Have you ever wondered how to smoke a cigar?

Learn how here: http://www.cigarhumidors-online.com/cigar-reviews-ratings/how-to-smoke-a-cigar.html

As simple as it may appear, preparing and smoking a cigar is not as straight forward as many may think.   From cutting and lighting, to holding and enjoying your favorite cigar, this helpful infographic explains everything on How to Smoke a Cigar in an easy step by step format.

Infographic Review

 

Infographic Design: B+

The design for this infographic is nice and meets a lot of the requirements that I look for in a good infographic. The title is clear and big with a great image incorporated into it. The different sections are clearly labeled and defined by headings. I think that having the numbered steps is great for people who enjoy lists and I know that I like that because it lays the information out in order  for what needs to be done. The images for the different sections also worked well and allowed the reader to see the correct way to hold, cut, and ash a cigar. The red color used throughout the infographic makes it stand out for readers and the tan background creates a nice back drop for the information. This infographic was well-designed and has a great layout for the information.

 

Infographic Information: A

I have never smoked a cigar so I found this information helpful for if I ever wanted to smoke one. I enjoyed the lists that explained step by step how to light a cigar. Also the information on how to hold, cut, and ash a cigar is great for anyone who has never smoked before. I thought having the section on how to enjoy a cigar was interesting. I had never thought of the proper way to smoke one I thought you just did it, but it is nice to see that it really is about the experience. I think the section on cigar etiquette was a smart section to add for people who are new to it so that they don’t offend anyone.  I will say that this infographic would also be helpful for people who do already smoke cigars because some of them do not follow the etiquette rules.  Lastly it was nice to have the last step  to be considerate of non-smokers. As a non-smoker I appreciate this and really that is all I ask of smokers, just be considerate. This was a really interesting infographic and I know anyone who reads it will be sure to learn something about cigar smoking.

 

In addition to the basics, this infographic from http://www.cigarhumidors-online.com will also familiarize you with acceptable cigar etiquette along with interesting tips on how to get the most flavor and enjoyment from your cigar.

Zodiac Sign vs. Horoscope Sign Infographic

Zodiac Sign vs. Horoscope Sign Infographic

zodiac-sign-road-sign-infographic

Zodiac signs are a way for people to understand themselves and have a reason for their actions. Some people do not believe in zodiac signs but for there are many people who love to read their horoscope every day and what it says. This infographic shows what your sign says about your driving.

 

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B-

Zodiac Signs are an interesting topic to do an infographic on and this one actually looks pretty good.  I think the layout and design was done well by breaking each sign into its own section. Each section had the name of the sign and the dates for that sign. I think it was smart to put the dates so that if someone did not know their sign they could figure it out. Also the background with the stars showing each sign in the stars was nice and really fit with the overall theme. The road signs also worked well with each horoscope in the sections. Overall it was a nice infographic but there could have been a lot more done to this that would make it look even better. It seems to just have enough but nothing that would make it extra special.


Infographic Information: C

The information on this infographic is actually very simple and boring. Most of the horoscopes do not really give any insight and are written poorly. Trying to use road signs as a creative way to talk about our life was a little cheesy. We have all heard the old saying that we are on the road of life so this concept is a little dated. While the information might have been a little cheesy and old it was still interesting to see what my horoscope said about me. I will say that it did describe me well except for the reference to driving where it suggested that I do not pick up hitchhikers. I would never pick up a hitch hiker anyway so this shows how these horoscopes are general and do not apply to everyone. Overall it was interesting to read this info graphic but it was cheesy and not really that informative.

Funny Exercise Chart (Infographic)

Funny Exercise Chart (Infographic)

exercise-throughout-the-day-infographic

Infographic Review

Infographic Design: B

I am assuming the infographic design was supposed to mimic a cheesy and out-of-date poster you might find on a junior high gym wall. If so, this infographic does a great job of taking me back to the 80s when this type of poster was prevalent especially as a public service ad or notification. I will point out a few nice details I think were intentional to juice up the comedy in this funny infographic: turkey leg in hand while running to fridge, face on female co-worker as man lunges in her direction, bored expression by dog as it is lifted and the hairy legs under the covers for bedroom gymnastics. Well done, indeed.

Infographic Information: A-

The text in this infographic is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek so we need to rate it based on its comedic value not on how helpful the information they provide on getting the ideal healthy beach body you have always wanted. I did smile at the “ideas” for treating your world as a gym such as “running to the fridge,” with turkey leg in hand and performing office lunges with your crotch directed at your female co-worker. And this gem, “Consideration: There is a distinct possibility that you may look like an idiot,” while performing public transport pull-ups. And I can attest to living room dog lifting. Very humorous and you feel compelled to read to see if the next joke will be better than the last. Writing comedy is hard, harder than drama (especially in an infographic) so give it up to the writer on this, they did a good job. I’ll not touch the bedroom gymnastics visual humor with a ten foot pole.

Most Interesting Things Moved By Atlas Movers Infographic

Most Interesting Things Moved By Atlas Movers Infographic

most-interesting-things-moved-by-atlas-940

This simple infographic talks about the strangest things moved by Atlas Van Operators. Some of them are strange indeed. They are mostly big things. I think about all the times I have moved, and if I had actually had the foresight to hire movers instead of being convinced that I could move myself, the strange things they would have moved without knowing it, because up until recently all of my strange items were small enough to put in boxes.  I suppose the large bagpipe and flute crest I bought at a rummage sale wouldn’t make these guys bat an eye, or would my globe that opens into a bar.  Everybody has one of those nowadays.  I wonder if they keep CDs in it like I do.  Anyway, I digress…

The infographic tells us that in 2010 Atlas participated in over 100,000 moves in the US and Canada.  That’s a lot of moves.  Normally in one of these posts we break the write-up into sections because today’s infographics are super-complicated, with lots of different types of information, and you have to break up what you write about because otherwise you’d be jumping from subject to subject and it would get crazy.  This infographic is different.  It has a nice blue background shaped like America, and little shadowy Atlas Van Operators moving all sorts of crazy stuff.  Here is the list, numbered like they numbered it, for easy reading.

1. Roy Rogers Freight Train
2. Dinosaur Exhibit
3. Helicopter
4. Stuffed Bear (I’m assuming a real bear, now deceased, and stuffed by a taxidermist)
5. Mini Submarine
6. Phone Booth (why?)
7. 1,000 lb Coffee Roaster (speechless)
8. Suit of Armor (that guy, clearly, was new when he answered this question.  Who hasn’t moved a suit of armor?)
9. Antique Gas Pump (cue the American Pickers)
10. 8 ft. Wooden Camel (like you do)
11. Ice Cream Truck (couldn’t someone have driven it?)
12. Tree Roots
13. Animatronic King Kong
14. Antique Asian Crown
15. Apollo Space Capsule

Design:  C

This is straightforward, clean, and fun to look at.

Information:  C

It is what it is.  It might be nice to see a little explanation about WHY the items were moved, but that would destroy the simplicity of the design.

How to have Jersey Shore Hair

How to have Jersey Shore Hair

how-to-have-jersey-shore-hair

I have never watched the TV show The Jersey Shore. This has been a conscience choice for two very good reasons. The first reason for not watching The Jersey Shore is because, God forbid, I might actually like it and then I couldn’t feel superior even as I watch my own fair share of craptastic television. The second reason I avoid this show is that I’m sure it would decrease my I.Q. and I do not hold a surplus on the I.Q. market, but I digress…

As mentioned, I don’t partake in the Guido television show, The Jersey Shore, so I cannot reference the accuracy of the information included in this infographic. I can attest to the humor of this design and the data supplied though. Whether or not these hairstyles from the Jersey Shore are mentioned in the show or are labeled by the infographics author is a mystery to me, but that doesn’t make them any less humorous. DJ Pauly D sports the Blow Out hairdo and Ronnie Magro wears the Faux Hawk with pride. Nicole Snooki Plizzi has a hairstyle named after her, I guess, the Snooki Bump while Deena Nicole Cortese is illustrated with simply luscious curls given to her by hair extensions and lots of teasing.

Directions/instructions are given for each hairstyle so you can attempt to copy your favorite Jersey Shore “star”, at least while their 15 minutes of fame is still ticking along. The content is written with a wry sense of humor and most likely any Guido or Guidette reading it might take the content seriously, which is part of the well-done joke. Some highlights read, “hair extensions may not be for everyone,” “spray it with hairspray…5 minutes straight,” and my favorite, “I’m a a Jersey girl, I like big hair!”

The illustrations are wonderful and I’m sure the body styles and clothing choices are a dead-on match for the realty TV stars. Dresses that are too small and too tight with lots of boobage for the ladies, and tight shirts, tank tops, and exposed chests for the guys are standard fare for these Jersey people. Each illustration captures an attitude which matches the character and contain comedic value that is probably lost on the characters themselves, but will resonate with those who watch the show.

I may never watch the show, God willing, but I’m glad I caught the infographic. Playful, instructive and an all around nice job.

Design: A-

The text is a bit hard to read, but worth reading. Everything else was right on track, colors, illustration and theme.

Information: A

If you want hair like your favorite Jersey Shore realty TV star, follow these directions and live the Guido life!
