I wish to have an infographic created for the 1960s (or maybe another decade if you wish). It is something I wish to commission within the next few days, but at the moment I am not quite sure exactly what I wish the content to be, so I thought I'd throw it out there to see if it is something that might inspire a designer.
Although each decade has its upbeat and downbeat events, I wish this to have a very definite overall feel-good factor. Although it will cover global events, it will be from a USA perspective.
The ultimate purpose of this infographic is to get people interested enough to click through to my website and then to purchase a low price product relevant to them! It has to be something that people will feel impelled to share with others.
I see this as a very exciting project for someone who feels a certain passion for the subject matter, rather than it just being another infographic job. I am open to suggestions of the best way to present this information, listed at the end of this description are some of the ideas I have that could be included. As I said in the beginning, this is something in the early stages of conception, but I wish to get it underway in the next few days.
I wish this infographic to effectively 'go viral', or in more down to earth terms I'd like it to be shared for years to come! If this infographic shows itself effective, I intend to have them for several other decades and then for individual years. This could then feasibly extend to those with a UK-centric view. I'd prefer to work with the same designer through all projects, the initial infographic becoming a basic template to cover future decades/years.
I shall send this job outline to a few designers that have caught my eye as I have looked through Upwork, but anyone who feels they can create something magnificent is welcome to apply! I wish that I had an unlimited budget to work with, but although it is more than $5 (I selected $100 purely because Upwork does not give one an open option), it is coming from limited finances rather than corporate funding. However, at this stage I am much more interested in knowing what you can offer creatively and what reward you wish, rather than trying to guess what is reasonable for what I require.
I will probably set 2 or more milestones for this project, the first being the overall look of the infographic. I would wish to have the PSD (or whatever original files) as we progress through the payment of each milestone.
I have looked for infographics covering decades/years, but was surprised to not really find anything so far - maybe I just haven't figured out the right search term yet.
I am new to Upwork, having only commissioned a couple of private design jobs to date, so I am very open to any suggestions regarding the best way to bring this job to realisation.
