slide7

There are 4 colors of text:

White, dark blue, black and red.

slide8

There are 4 colors of text:

White is used for the title

Dark blue is used for almost everything else

Black and Red are each used just once

slide9

There are 4 colors of text:

White is used for the title. Since it’s both the only white text and the largest

Text, it stands out.

Dark blue is used for almost everything else including all of labels, section

Headings and annotations.

Black and Red are each used just once, in both cases to add emphasis.

There are 4 colors of text:

White is used for the title which gives an overview of the topic of the visual

Dark blue is used for almost everything – the labels that name the diseases and point

To where they occur in the body, the descriptions that explain the diseases in detail,

The facts about how many people are affected and where they live.

Black is used for ‘1.1 billion people’ and red for the sentence that compares number

of people to number of people who can fit in an airplane.

slide10

There are 4 colors of text:

White is used for the title. Since it’s both the only white text and the largest

text, it stands out immediately. In fact, it’s the only white element on

the page other than the the lines used to create border and a handful of

other minor spots (the background of the ‘tab’, the white sand in the hourglass,

the names of states colored black, and the logo on the plane).

slide11

Dark blue against a pale blue background is used for almost everything else including

most of labels which are consistently also bold, all caps, and of the same, medium size

making them easy to scan for and creating unity – the red circles next to each label

also make them easy to scan for.

slide12

The three section headings also get essentially the

same treatment, though they’re slightly larger and their red circles each have the

section number inside.

slide13

The annotations under each label and all of the remaining text under each section

heading gets the same treatment – a very small font which makes it the lowest in the

visual hierarchy.

Two exceptions are the font used for the portions of the annotations which call out the

numbers of people who die each year and each day. The fact that this text is even larger

than the section headings makes it jump out.

slide14

Black and Red are each used just once, in both cases to add emphasis and

to associate those bits of text with a visual element which has the same color.
