Before doing anything on Illustrator, I made a sketch of the idea. I wanted to reuse the idea of the bird (the logo of "Fais-Moi Signe").
With using the bird as the mascot of this infography, I wanted to make it "shine". So, I decided to do a black and white illustration : only the bird is in color (chart graphic), making it unavailable for the illustration.
change of style
At the right, you can see one of the first illustration I did for "Fais-Moi Signe" website. I decided to change the cartoon style and go for a more realist style with this illustration.
