I chose this color model because it has a very clean color contrast. While it is slightly limiting in therms of what I can do with color, the sleek profesional vibe is defenetly worth the lack of many colors.
I chose this text model because I like the contrasting fonts and colors. I feel that they will match well with my topic. The tall blocky texy is both new-age and fun. I'm am not yet sure if this will become my base model.
Becaue I'm using d3.js for my final project, and my final infographic will be on a web page, so I am restricted to a relitivly vertical layout. While it may seem plain, I think a vertical layout will provide a clear sence of order, which will allow me to explore a narative within my final infographic.
