Sky Map

Designer: Paulina Urbańska

This is a beautiful educational infographic visualising apparent motion of the stars. It shows the sky during the longest night in the year (The Winter Solstice, from 23rd to 24th December). This project was based on materials sourced date provided by Planetarium in Chorzów, Silesia. The project consist of catalog of the star constellations, poster and an animation, which shows the apparent motion.

The way this has been laid out in a book allows for it to be dissected into smaller chunks of data, so one image shows it all together, where as the next just shows the motion of the stars and their colours without any information at all.

This could be one way that I approach my design format, looking at books, they’re layout, and how other infographics utilise them.
