Turning a report into an infographic

As we preach at Mindset, there are many ways to tell a story, and you need to pick the right format for each medium and message.

We have spent the past few months working with the Columbus Education Commission, which was commissioned to chart a better future for children in our community.

Our role on the team was to engage and inform the community through the Reimagine Columbus Education website and the @ReimagineCbusEd Twitter account. We loved the opportunity to help the commission connect with so many residents and community groups.

The commission’s final recommendations are presented in an in-depth report called FutureReady Columbus (it’s posted on the Reimagine website). But the commission also wanted an infographic to share the highlights in a visual style that works on the web.

We’re proud of the result, which is both informative and easy to read. The entire infographic is on the Reimagine website, but we’ve posted a slideshow here that breaks it into chapters.
