Infographics Feature: Advanced Photoshop Mag

 

Issue #73 of Advanced Photoshop Magazine (on sale now in the U.S.) includes a special feature on infographics starting on page 90.  There’s the feature article, and a separate step-by-step tutorial by Josh Overton.  Sadly, the article isn’t available online anywhere that I can find.

 

 

I did an interview for the feature article, including my thoughts on why infographics are growing in popularity and the process of creating infographics.  The article also includes thoughts from designers Mike Sudal, Bryon Thompson, Jude Buffum, Vic Kulihin, Samuel A. Minick and Raj Kamal.

Sadly, as sometimes happens in the editing process, none of my infographic images were included in the final article, and at least one of my responses was attributed to another designer. :(

 

 

I did find that Josh Overton has posted a scan of the tutorial on his site, and the source PSD file is available from the Advanced Photoshop tutorials website.

Seems that the tutorial only teachs how to look pretty, not how to represent numbers adequately.

Hey. Thanks for putting my work on your site.

My tutorial was about vector graphics and I had to add infograpgics to it somehow so I did it in a simple format just to help the magazine. But the to us was on vector styled art in Photoshop not illustrator.

Cheers

You're welcome Josh!

It was a good tutorial, and I understand that the magazine was trying to tie them together under the umbrella theme of Infographics.
