Comments on: Inception Infographics: Which is the Best Inception Infographic? Reviews of the best infographic design ideas Fri, 23 Jun 2023 15:23:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Anonymous Fri, 26 Aug 2011 23:24:00 +0000 Thanks Jason! Very much appreciated. And thanks for being understanding about my criticism. If you’ve indeed checked out the rest of the blog, you’ve seen that I’m a pretty picky bastard about infographics, but I really do try to acknowledge merits when I see them, and yours did have its share. If you come up with more work, please feel free to send it to me via the contact form.

I’m glad you were able to find value and appreciate the uniqueness of my info-graphic and I appreciate it’s inclusion. (I’m the author of #6) Your comments regarding it sound like great ideas for improvement, if I were to re-make it :D

You rock, and I’ll check out the rest of your blog.

more I regret not putting you in the #3 spot. I like what’s currently
there, but yours is more original and crispier. Really, fine job. I’d
love to see new work of yours in the future, so please feel free to send
it my way. Thanks again!

My pleasure! The praise is well-deserved.

I must say, I don’t think #8 and #2 really do achieve the same result, even though they both deal with timescales. As I say in the review of #8, it shows how much time it would feel like for the character if they spent the whole plane journey at the level in question, wheras #2 shows how much time was spent at the level in question in the actual film, which the concentric circles allow you consider relative to the other layers.

Thanks for the comment, and for your fine work.

I really like the second entry as well, it is the best technical representation of the movie timeline. While #8 would be a common solution for depicting time, #2’s use of concentric circles achieves the same result in an elegant manner.

Nothing personal, of course.

I did find it certainly clearer than similar competing infographics with a similar layout (#11 and #12), even despite the lack of colour. Still, really, a bit of colour could have gone a long way, perhaps with each character’s vertical line colour matching their dream level horizontal line’s colour? I wonder if something like that could work, if the background grey was lightened a bit to accommodate colour better.

Many of the others are indeed very graphically heavy. Despite not thinking graphics should get rewarded for their own sake, I find that in most cases the graphics added more than they distracted, and were used to try to accomplish something specific.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.


By: David Tue, 03 May 2011 13:18:00 +0000 Thanks for including my infographic (no. 10) in your review – agree it’s a little boring compared to the others and colour could have helped but I still find it far easier to read than most of the others which go way over the top with the graphics. No. 1 is great but it’s pretty hard to follow the lines since they’re so tightly packed.

By: Ucekiller Tue, 03 May 2011 12:47:00 +0000 I like #2!
