I decided to look at some infographics and read about them so I can try to build some sort of reality around my fictional 'Build a DIY Frankenstein' idea. The infographic should be short and sweet without loads of text and more pictures than text. Transitions, font and colours are all important. I noticed that most infographics have a specific colour palette that is consistent through the animation or image and the transitions are usually similar which lets them flow better. Depending on the infographic, some will include statistics, charts, and percentages, or steps to present their animation.
For my idea, I think using 'steps' would be best since it is about creating/building something and if I want it short and sweet having too many random statistics will be useless in a 'how to build' infographic. For example I could have a step for collecting body parts and maybe statistics to show where people acquire them in a chart that includes things such as organ donors, graves, or other. Another example is I could have a step for 'creating life's spark' and have statistics on what people use such as thunder storms, a bathtub with a toaster, or some other method.
