Making of Infographic - Exploring the Red Planet

Farruh Tillaev

Here’s a little “behind the scenes” process of making this information graphic.

- mission outcome (success, fail, etc)
- date of the mission
- country of Origin

Now that we have the information, time to sketch up some ideas on how to best show this timeline of launches:

Now that we have established the direction, time to start creating the graphic.
