Hi everyone this graphic design section seams a bit dead but Im hoping to find a permanent group to go to discuss design with.
Im a recent graduate working to improve on my skills
Im definitely no expert when it comes to infographic's in fact this is my first go at it, but what do you think.
Its about one of my personal heroes Bruce Lee
any and all crits & comments appreciated, if you catch any errors too id love to know
looks pretty cool, how did you make the textured background? custom brush?
I like it. The colour palette is limited but accentuates the vibrance of the yellow. The information itself is inspiring and I'm feeling inclined to research Jeet Kung do and Bruce more on my own and his philosophy, which I'm guessing is the graphics' intended purpose. Good work sir.
Thanks for the comments guys, eulalia I made the background by combining several textures I had plus some scaterbrush strokes and other photoshop magic...
you should check out more on bruce hes was a inspirational human
I'm not a fan of the grunge texture effect you have put on there, its not adding anything graphically and seems to be distracting away from whats important, If you are not willing to remove it completely, try pulling it back with a lower opacity/fading. Also I would personally change the colour palette.

Well the idea behind the grunge texture and color scheme was this:
I was trying to capture the energy and time period of bruce lee at a single glance,
I dont know about you guys but when i think of bruce lee I think of first someone getting punched kicked in the face, then that yellow jump suit he wore in dragon, then the really old and grainy film textures that were on all the kungfu films of the 70's (whenever I watch a bruce lee movie I feel like I watch it with a guy puffing away on a cigar in front of me.)
I agree the grunge effect is a bit heavy handed and i may scale it back some but I feel it does add more than it takes away as all the text is still legible with it being there. not to mention it adds a focal point like eulalia said, and also gives it a mood like he just kicked up alot of dust kicking ass.
as far as the colors go I tried to do it with a purposely limited color palette to alow somethings to really pop, I tried to pick subdued complimentary colors like the mint green background and the maroon purple color of the body, and went with yellow to highlight and draw attention to key elements and bring out that lee energy ( i wanted it to seem like bruce never stops moving not sure if that comes through)
the yellow also allows the less important darker colors to fade into the background, (phoenix etc.)
anyhow thats my defense of my choices.
not that im unwilling to make any changes or anything like that, but there was reasoning behind the design. thats what i feel makes it design.
