Students are given the performance task of designing an infographics poster based on a set of data and statistics related to various sectors in Singapore.
Inforgraphics are simplified graphical representations of complex information, data or knowledge that aid the human processing.
Students need to understand the target audience and the fundamentals of using symbols and numbers and to present them in an effective and aesthetic way. They need to explore the idea of how communication can be done effectively through signs and using symbols and numbers that are representational. They also need to think about how communication can be done with the use of minimal text.
The project encourages students to use to simplify complex information, data or knowledge into digestible information for the mass.
