It has been said that I can over-research a subject prior to a project. Still, I consider research a very necessary part of my workflow. Especially, in this case, where I have not done infographics before, like so many other new project. I find it necessity to constantly adapt to new styles, learn a new paradigm, and simply stay up to date with advances in technology and trends. I myself start this though research.
I also value research as a quest for inspiration. I am not the type of visionary who can pull ideas and creativity out of thin air. I need to surround myself with the ideas of others. Quite simply, I need to create a fertile foundation for ideas to grow from. And this I often seek inspiration in the work of so many other designer far more experienced than me.
And often, for this reason, I find I proportionally weigh research heavily and spend a fair amount of time up from on it. I am constantly looking for that next bit of inspiration around the corner, or on the next page or web link. I spent a fair number of hours, until things started to seem the same, and new bits of information no longer easily present themselves.
So I thought I’d share some of what I’ve found. There are so many excellent examples of infographic resumes throughout the web. Below are simply a number of links that I found to be inspiring. Included are a list of the best articles I came across, collections of infographic, and individual resumes I thought were noteworthy.
