Thanks! Yeah, along with my group. We are trying to get as many views as possible for it. If anyone has any ideas of how to market (views) this, let me know? Thanks.

Good job!

A couple of quibbles ...
  • Using a gradient to convey a percentage is confusing. Where exactly is 45% in that first graphic? I kinda know ... but why make it unclear?

  • All that work and you couldn't line up the colored squares in the attached graphic below? Also, the numbers inside the pie chart could be typeset better.

  • The bottom list of referenced sites is too big. It should have been underplayed to not compete visually with the rest of the infographic. And I wouldn't include anything in the url that isn't absolutely necessary: no http://, no www.

But those are just quibbles.

Well done!

Very cool. Well done!

I like the textured background and the muted blue colors.

I've never worked on an infographic before, but it definitely looks like fun!

Nicely done! I just did two infographics recently, and I know they can be a real challenge.

My professor also made a comment on the pie chart. He isn't a fan of pie charts because they don't accurate represent the portions. I agree with you about the reference part, but I already handed in the project. Now I have to get as many views as possible.

Thanks for the comments!

Next time try it horizontal. Vertical is so boring.

I can't stand these types of infographics, but good work getting it done all the same.

Well.. Its an informational Post. I liked the way you represented it.
