After starting work w/ Blue Water, I was contracted to work with CNCS/AmeriCorps for roughly 3 months, from mid-July to the end of September 2014. During this time, the organization was celebrating their 20th Anniversary, and I was tasked with creating a series of infographic plates that would illustrate various factoids about how AmeriCorps makes an impact in the daily lives of Americans nationwide.
Using Illustrator and Photoshop, I was able to create a series of factoids that could be published every week during the month of September 2014, during their 20th Anniversary celebration. Each week, a few of these factoids would be published to AmeriCorps’ Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr pages and would be shared by fans nationwide.
The final piece was a combination of all the prior factoids into a single mega-infographic. This piece was shown to the public on National Service’s Tumblr / Facebook / Twitter pages on the same day President Obama was speaking on the occasion of the organization’s 20th anniversary.
The pieces were well-received by staff/members of CNCS/AmeriCorps. To my pleasure, it was also retweeted by the White House and shared amongst the nationwide audience to see all the various ways AmeriCorps helps all Americans daily.
