As a passion project, I put together an infographic about UFOs. I started my project by researching data on the National UFO Reporting Center’s website (NUFORC).
After researching the topic, I went to work in Photoshop creating the space background. Once I was happy with the look, I created the common UFO icons in Illustrator. While there were plenty of styles I could’ve gone with, I decided to stick to the main UFO builds reported. To finish the infographic, I included a list of movements most common with UFO sightings and made adjustments to colors used.
My main goal was to document the rise in reported UFO sightings, and give the viewer a quick reference to compare what they might have seen. It was a fun project, and a fairly quick exercise in infographics.
Programs used: Illustrator and Photoshop.
