The notorious deeds of Renaissance Italy's ruling family clans categorized under Dante Alighieri's nine levels of Hell. Caught in the midst of the Guelph and Ghibelline conflicts of the thirteenth century, Dante would have had a thing or two to say about the avarice, corruption and mercilessness of Italy's competing families. The Malatesta and Rimini are one of many that make frequent appearances in The Divine Comedy.
This infographic focuses on twelve families that existed simulataneously during the span of the Renaissance (1350-1600): Borgia, Medici, Este, Malatesta, Bentivolgio, Baglioni, Petrucci, Gonzaga, Sforza, Colonna, Orsini and Montefeltro.
As an avid history geek, compiling these jaw-dropping stories of lust, crime and gluttony was such a delight. Unfortunately, I only had so much room to fit a comprehensive snapshot of the times. Better upload of the infographic coming soon. Deviantart is experiencing difficulty with my large, high resolution file.
I was hired by Grockit.com to produce an infographic based on the information that they gave me. This was my first attempt at ever doing an infographic. I have much to learn, but I am happy with the first attempt. Enjoy!
This was yet another university task, and my very first infographic. The brief was to create a design based on an examination of our own patterns of consumption, but somewhere along the line I seemed to have lost sight of simplifying and condensing the information and made things more complicated than necessary, but I learned a great deal from this anyhow!
The final print was 420mm wide and 891mm tall. Criticism, as always, is very much appreciated!
