Where Infographics Meet CARP

As we’re beginning our first project in Creative Design for Instructional Materials, we need to understand how important Contrast, Alignment, Repetition and Proximity or CARP is to creating an infographic that will be meaningful to our learning audience. In scanning the internet, I found the following infographic that represents good CARP:

Why is this great CARP?


The colors match throughout. They compliment each other well and the follow of the instructions are easy to follow.


The steps are aligned both vertically and horizontally, even though they’re across the infographic from each other. The image of the glove and the overview are aligned in the middle of the page and with each other as well.


The gloves that are edited throughout are showing this. The same glove, just highlighted differently to emphasize the steps it takes.


The gloves that are showing the instruction throughout stay the same size, even though they are emphasizing different parts of the glove. The text remains the same on the infographic as well.
