I started to make research on my subject and there is so much information about brain waves so i need to specialize on on e part in order to get an info graphic that is not to full. As someone that always uses to much i found info graphics a good way to cut down to a minimum and visualize the information. I was surprised how wave disorders and abnormality are connected to three major diseases in our time: Depression, Sleep Disorders and ADHD. Brainwaves can be manipulated by Drugs, Alcohol, Relaxants, Antidepressiva, Coffein, Meditation, Sleep, Stimulants and more.
In Illustrator i miss a lot all the functions i have for type styles and aligning from indesign working with text is much harder. I like a lot the color panel and its options its almost like adobe color just inside the App and makes the choice of colors really easy. In the end i cropped the final exported image in photoshop hoping that once Illustrator will crop like Photoshop ... I know there is crop now in Illustrator now but i could not find it. Its just not as user friendly as photoshop.
I could not get the icon font work it produces always two circles one besides the other instead of both together to make the graphic. First i thought that's may be just an issue in Illustrator. But its not i could not get it to work in word either. So i used the chart options inside illustrator and in the fact you can add real data and import it is great, for this project i did not need it but i guess i will in future. And i did not use the charts either because my info graphic does not contain percentages or numbers. Its more a general overview in order to show and explain the brainwaves in a special context. I think in a future project i may enlarge this one and add charts.
