An infographic produced as an introduction to the complicated yet often overlooked world of lexicography. To educate audiences about the colorful history of dictionaries, I decided to make 'the dictionary' a character audiences emotionally engage with.

The imagery was rooted in visuals from different types of dictionaries — serif typefaces for older physical books and geometric typefaces for modern web-based dictionaries — while the colors and textures were inspired by archaic books and collages.
