2014 MarCom Awards Entry Spotlight: ProPoint Graphics

MarCom Awards Company: ProPoint Graphics
Location: New York, New York
Title of Entry: Daylight Saving Time — A Historical and Practical Guide
Category: 208. Infographic

ProPoint GraphicsEver wonder how Daylight Saving Time got started?  Or how it was used during World War II? ProPoint Graphics of New York City was tasked with researching all things DST (by the way, there is no “s” at the end of “Saving”).

Many infographics display too much information or perhaps muddle the relationship between text and graphics. ProPoint easily works through these potential problems. The result is an eye-catching infographic that gives readers a quick and pertinent overview of DST past, present and future.

To find out what inspired designer Monica Siguenza to create the infographic, head over to ProPoint’s blog.
