Mohsin Sharif got their new infographic by running a design contest:
Depicting a process that shows how our financial products work at the Islamic Development Bank
Check out Mohsin Sharif's Infographic contest…
Accounting & Financial
Story to tell in the infographic
We want to show how our financial products work. Who are the parties to the financing. What happens first. What happens next. The relationship between the parties. And so on. Main thing to remember here is: It is a Process. The MS PowerPoint file (attached) shows simple charts of how every product is used. It also contains text explaining each step. There is not much difference between all of them, except for some arrows and names of the parties. What we want One Master Infographic file with all the products, stacked one after the other vertically. (Please see the Layout PowerPoint attached) However, we would also like to use individual products separately. I’m assuming a simple copy and paste from the Master Infographic would do the trick. No restrictions on resolution of the Master Infographic. However, for the individual product, we should be able to resize it to fit a Manual (9 inc. width x 6 inc. height) that we are going to print soon in which each product will be on one page. So I don't think the size matters. What matters is the quality when we resize it for separate use.
Data to include in the infographic
No data. A) Background of the Infographic Any Islamic geometrical design like the ones attached in the Islamic Patterns PowerPoint. The first page shows a design. The Weight of the Outline of the design is preferable like that. Make sure the outlines are not bold. The simpler the geometrical design, the better. B) Text of the steps If you can pick the main words from the text of the steps and use it in the process arrows (or whatever you come up with to connect the parties), it would be nice. For example, In Grant, Step 1, IDB signs an agreement with the Recipient. So just showing a Stack of Papers alongwith a text saying "Grant Agreement signed". And then, in Step 4 of the same, in case the supplier delivers computers. Two computers with a text saying "Deliver goods/services" would do. C) Bank's Logo The Bank's HD logo is attached. Use it to signify the Bank in every product, just like in the PowerPoint. D) Color Theme Green and Gold, as in the Bank's Logo would be preferable as the color theme. However, feel free to experiment sincere and easy-on-eye colors. E) 3D icons for the parties are very welcome.
Elements to include in the infographic
Sketches/Silhouettes of Money, Agreement and Assets A. The Money Wherever the money flows, for example, when IDB pays a Supplier, a money note or a bundle of cash or notes with 'Islamic Dinar' or 'ID' written on it. That's our currency ;) If only 'ID' fits, the full form can be clarified as a sidestrip somewhere. B. The Agreements Wherever an Agreement is being signed, stack of papers could be helpful. C. The Assets (Most Important!) For each product, there are certain Assets that can be delivered. Sketches/Silhouettes of the products would really help to show what the financial products are for. For some sample sketches of windmills, roads, solar panels etc., I have highlighted them in the PowerPoint with the blue infographic of the Asian Development Bank. For example, our Grant is usually for 10 Water Pumps in a village, or a School in a remote area or a Community Centre etc. Following are the Assets for each financial product: 1. Grant - In Step 4, a school, Water Pump, computers for a school, a community centre etc. could be delivered by the supplier. 2. Loans - In Step 4, a water dam, real estate, electricity towers could be delivered by the supplier. 3. Leasing - In Step 4, heavy machinery like cranes etc. or ships could be delivered by the supplier. 4. Istisna'a - In Step 4, roads, factories, bridges, container ports etc. could be delivered by the consultant and the contractor/manufacturer. 5. Installment Sale - In Step 4, manufacturing machines, power plants etc. could be delivered by the supplier. 6. Restricted Mudaraba - In Step 4, the business could be investment in solar panels, renewable energy etc.
Would appreciate if we could have a JPEG, PDF and AI file at the end. Hope I've been clear enough. Will be constantly providing feedback. Wish you all the best.
