What I learned during paper-protyping

During the paper prototype phase of infographic design, I decided to employ the concept of the spatial contiguity effect. This means that better transfer occurs when printed words are placed near corresponding parts of graphics. I had to be careful to align the printed words near the corresponding parts of the graphics to reduce need for visual scanning. I don’t want my viewers looking all over the graphic trying to match parts together. Graphics need to be a quick and easy reference.
