Infographic Design Process

Fast Fashion Infographic 

  • A fact sheet summarising the impacts of fast fashion on the environment and workers in the apparel industry
  • Solutions for reducing the consumption of fast fashion

The solution
A business model of the future should aim to foster a deeper and longer lasting connection to fewer and better clothes– sustainable, valuable relationship

  • Editing your wardrobe
  • 1) Reevaluate entire wardrobe and rediscover forgotten items or identify repeated purchases
  • 2) Scrutinise clothing into “yes” and “no” piles, and start to declutter your wardrobe
  • 3) Tackle the “no” pile and decide on ways to give your clothes new life– repair, restyle, redesign or disposal
  • 4) Reorganize “yes” pile into the closet – trousers, tops, bottoms etc. to inspire new previously unimagined outfit combinations
  • 5) Document it– make lists, labels or take photos to keep track of your wardrobe
  • Avoid buying new clothes
  • 1) Buying vintage clothing
  • 2) Thrift shopping
  • 3) Swap clothes with a friend
  • 4) Loan/Rent clothes for any occasion– Clothing rental services
  • Think before you shop ( SHOPPING BAGS)
  • 1) Quality over Quantity– quality clothing lasts longer and becomes a long-term investment piece “buy cheap buy twice”
  • 2) Will you really wear it? – if you won’t get at least 30 wears out of it, don’t bring it home
  • 3) There’s always an alternative– borrow, loan or look deeper into your closet
  • 4) Learn how to love them– learn to take care of your clothes better
  • Circular Design – keeping materials in circulation where recovery or future use is anticipated and enabled
  • Circular Resources– designed with recovery in mind
  • Circular material flows– anything that escapes the industrial cycle should aim to do no harm but to be an active nutrient in the system as a whole
  • Circular  systems– eradicate waste altogether
  • don’t BUT IT unless you LOVE IT, and if you love it, you should MEND IT and if you don’t want it, find a responsible way of DISPOSING of IT

Draft 1
Receipt concept of laying out information



  • Too wordy
  • Wardrobe graphic took up too much space, hence not enough space for other information
  • More graphics can be used to illustrate data
  • The weight of typefaces can be switched up to create more hierarchy within the information
  • The orientation of infographic can be switched to landscape so that there is more space to place information

Draft 2


  • Landscape layout works better
  • Crumpled receipt adds visual noise
  • Still lacks some hierarchy amongst the information
  • Play around with colours
  • Background still looks a little flat

Hence, I decided to go with a flat lay of a receipt to create more dimension and reduce visual noise.
