Infographic, Print

The Surplus Lines Association of California wanted to demonstrate their projected technology offerings in 2017 in a way that was eye-catching and a topic of conversion at a stakeholder conference.

The concept for this deliverable was inspired by a Gantt chart, a business tool commonly used to represent projects on a linear timeline. Clocks and circular (Mayan) calendars were the inspiration behind the final shape of the poster.
A modern and minimal approach to typography maintained the visual weight on the timeline.
