Your assignment for this course: Create an infographic with at least 10 icons that will convey a message or raise awareness. Use what you learned about how to best represent different kinds of information. Be creative and have fun assembling the elements relevant to the story icons into a big cohesive graphic.
The infographic can be done through any software you are familiar with I will be using Power Point. You can use: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Excel, Prezi, Tableau, or just pen and paper.
