Project Description

The common dandelion is a plant we are all familiar with. Since it’s so common, we often forget how clever and interesting it is. That is, I design this infographic to invite the audience to appreciate the science behind the dandelion seeds. In order to connect the didactic content with visual content, I use different line elements to coherent the unique delicate characteristic of the dandelion and the science of fluid dynamics.Moreover, to make the texts and graphics easy to read, I apply different value contrast to emphasize the contents. Finally, to lead the audience throughout the piece, I arrange the layout and different visual elements to create an eye flow. Biomimicry is an amazing subject, this piece is intended to invoke the appreciation of nature, and further inspire the audience’s creativity.
