I was tasked with making two infographics using two different programs. The first infographic I created was through Canva, while the second infographic was created through Photoshop. Infographics are meant to help readers get quick and important information in an appealing way. The creator of an infographic can be as creative as they would like to be when creating one, which is one of my favorite aspects of infographics. Infographics are a great way to grab the attention of someone.
The infographic I created through Canva includes reasons why you should visit Auburn and Opelika. I decided to create my infographic based on places to visit or activities to do in these cities because I am interested in working for a tourism bureau or chamber of commerce. I believe I am drawn to working in the tourism industry because I am not limited to working in a certain area of the country since most cities have some type of tourism industry. I could truly work anywhere! The tasks and responsibilities for a tourism bureau are different each day, which is what I am looking for in a job. I want to look forward to expecting something new each day when I walk into work. This infographic allowed me to show off these two cities in a fun way. The attractions of both cities are showcased through this infographic.
The infographic I created through Photoshop was to inform you on why you should drink water. While you may drink soft drinks or sports drinks, those are not the same as drinking water. Staying hydrated is important to living a healthy lifestyle. Being hydrated is especially important if you live in an area that has a summer season such as Auburn. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided the information for my infographic, and the picture for this infographic was retrieved from Pixabay.
