Infographic Design: A-

Okay, the subject matter may not be sexy, but that doesn’t mean your graphic design has to boring. While the black and orange Halloween color scheme is a bit puzzling, it doesn’t distract from the entirety of the design. Someone paid attention in design class and kept the colors, images and fonts nicely packaged to form a very presentable infographic. The imagery and graphics appear to be custom or at least from the same collection of clip art. Coloring them in the same format as the rest of the infographic is a no-brainer and helps retain a nice cohesion. Fonts are solid and slab serif, which lends itself to the hopeful stability of these financial institutions. Creative, well-designed and even fun, this infographic is worth investing in.
