This week, I’ve been working hard in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to get the layout, the data and the icon done.
The inspired layout
I found this image online at halongbay.holiday and I thought with a little tweeking this image can work. I wish I could have taken this picture myself but too bad, I’m on the other side of the world.
The image is of Halong Bay, one of the most well-known attraction in Vietnam. I thought to myself that if I could expand the height of the sky by blending the existing sky with a gradient in Photoshop, it would be the perfect background for my infographic.
The infographic – 10 hours later…
Well, most of it….
Except for the maps that I traced for Google Map, all graphics was drawn by me. I sketched a couple of them on a piece of paper and vectorized.
