Start Researching.

My chosen infographic topic is a travel guild to Vietnam or “Guide to Vietnam.” I decided to start my researching process with going online and look for fun facts about Vietnam. Even though I’m from Vietnam, I’d still love to know about what facts people think is cool about Vientnam. Below are a few of the articles that I’ve found relating to the topic:

Ten Interesting Facts about Vietnam

15 Facts About Vietnam

17 unkown facts about Vietnamese cuisine

A few sketches.

It’s definitely a challenge to come up with a great infographic layout that works. I need to find a layout that’s flow and the information is not too cluttered.

Color Scheme?

Red and Yellow is the color of the national flag. I went on Adobe Kuler to find a color scheme that has those colors. Here’s a few that I’ve found that can work well for what I had in mind.
