After, getting the headline and the main focal point of the graphic done, i then needed to think about how i was going to represent the other data that would tie everything together. I wanted it to focus on the positive side to competition and not focus it mainly on the disabilities that are prominent in each athlete that competed. The reason behind this thought process is that all if not most of the current infographics use the disability aspect and doesn’t focus enough on the individuals themselves and there talent.
As I didn’t use a symbol that represented a disability, people could presume that a disability is something to be ashamed of but its not totally opposite, I wanted to focus more on the star quality everyone has. Therefore, instead i used a star and within the stars relevant key data will be placed. To keep in with the theme of the star quality and the headline. I used directional lines on the outlines of the star. this makes the data shine through more. Orbs were also used to create a a shine/glow. i used white and golden yellows to represent winning gold and the colours of stars.
