An original timeline graphic to summarize an amazing year
Lean In is a nonprofit organization and online community, founded by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, dedicated to helping all women achieve their ambitions. The Canadian chapter of Lean In was founded in 2013 and continues to grow every year. Lean In Canada needed a graphic visualization that would communicate all of the exciting progress made in 2016. It was sent out by email to thousands of members and is posted on LeanInCanada.com, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
This Year In Review infographic uses a combination of existing guidelines and new elements to create a familiar yet dynamic timeline. Using the brand’s colours, image overlays, and fonts ensures that the design is consistent with Lean In Canada’s other promotional materials. Deliberate design details like bold typography, cut-out photos, and small icons create a visual rhythm that represents the excitement of the year’s events.
