Grateful for the opportunity to do an illustration for Money Sense Magazine. The article I was assigned was about how some of the most widely used financial planning software weren’t the most user friendly programs to use. Often times users are given so many pieces of information that decision making is actually impeded rather than streamlined.
I pitched a few ideas focusing on people using over complicated machines and ideas relying on the decision making process, but ultimately we decided to go with a more simple approach (fitting). The final shows a hand and flashlight highlighting a small portion of an info graphic. The section the user sees is positive, but some of the figures just outside their line of sight show a more complicated and possible negative interpretation of data.
