Stuck In The Deep End Infograph by University of the Incarnate Word

Swimming pools in the United States can do more harm than good. Not many people in America realize how much pools hurt the environment. An infographic poster can help shed a little light onto the problem. I created a poster that evokes the emotion of a cool and inviting pool. I did this with a 3-color color palette to draw a reader in, a layout meant to mimic the movement in of swimming in pool lanes, and abstracted and simple data visualization to translate information in a more serious tone. The graphs, charts, and icons work together to connect the main idea: pools help beat the heat but are they worth it if they are beating up our Earth?
