What You Might Not Know About Coffee Consumption.

Review on the Layout:

A refreshing take on both color scheme and vertical layout. When I think coffee i wouldn’t immediately think baby blue and orange, but after some thought the colors are great for resembling early morning, or coffee. Each section representing additional factoids is smart design and makes it so that there is no confusion where one stops and another begins. Cute design as a whole package.

Review of the Content:

Incredible statistics here for a numbers nerd. I would have guessed that coffee shops sold more in a single year, given the enormous elephant that coffee has become in our society, but it is still rather interesting. Rather surprising figure that only 32.7% of women drink coffee. Great information here that can be enjoyed by all.

Overall:

As a package I enjoyed this infographic from the group at Lazy Health, it has some interesting information in a digestible and comforting color scheme plus linear layout. I would give this piece a solid 4.7 out of 5. Checkout the original post on here.

 

Brand Numbers: What Do They Mean?

Review of the Layout:

Creative use of color creates an effect in the title that makes me laugh. Meanings behind brand numbers with numbers drawn from letters, very creative. I like the structure of the layout, isolating each brand clearly with their own tidbit of information. The only qualm that I have with the design is the use of grey text on the yellow and green backgrounds. I would suggest using black if a dark color is desired here. This is because otherwise when meshed against the other light colors and reduced in resolution quality for quick loading on the web such as this it becomes hard to read.

Review of the Content:

I enjoyed reading these pieces about each brand, many of them I had never heard before. Some of these I would not believe if heard by another friend, but I am certain they are all true here. For sake of sharing some little known facts, add to the Nintendo 64 that the logo ‘N’ that Nintendo uses to signify an N64 actually contains 64 faces in full 3D. On topic, each brand is self contained and has its own history, often with nods to its history growing as new logos are developed. I thought here in the infographic some of that history was explained well.

Overall:

Great information and visuals with a single miscue. This does not detract too much from the overall presentation, however, as I would still find this to be a 4.6/5

Put Old Coffee Grounds to Use

Review of the Layout:

The upbeat graphics littered throughout this infographic adds an almost whimsical tone to the subject matter. As the reader scrolls though the different ways to recycle their used coffee grounds a feeling of intelligence forms as they see in little pictures different ways that they may recycle their coffee. The color scheme used is intelligent, sticking to natural earthen tones when applicable, but switches to this firetruck red to draw the readers attention to important bits of information. Extremely intelligent design.

Review of the Content:

Who knew there were so many uses for used coffee grounds? The folks over at Lucaffe did their research and many of these ideas are new to me. A few seem slightly repulsive, like using coffee grounds on my steak, but I refuse to judge the suggestion before I try it. Many of these uses are creative and not at all obvious so I commend them for their out-of-the-box thinking.

Overall:

Dramatic use of red to draw the readers attention while posing more uses for recycled coffee grounds than I care  to imagine lead me to giving this infographic a 4.8/5. If I had to come up with a critique for this awesome piece it would be to place a bounding box around the infographic so readers eyes do not wander towards the end of the page. Very minimal, but still potentially helpful.
