I had the opportunity to redesign an existing infographic about the difference between a meteoroid, meteor and meteorite, in order to make this learning material easier to understand.
As a Learning designer, I studied the whole process of the space rock at different stages. Then, I analysed the existing resource for identifying the main problem, finding a solution and improving it.
It is unclear which atmosphere the meteoroid is entering, and burning up in, while on its journey to become a meteorite.
I redesigned the visual explanation; putting in an image for each of the three stages (Meteoroid, Meteors and Meteorites).
Above each stage, I explained the space object in light of its positioning. Additionally, I slightly modified the text of the meteors’ explanations, adding the individual names of Earth’s atmospheric layers; e.g. the Mesosphere layer where the meteoroids become meteors.
Finally, I added the altitude layers (approximations) in order to reflect reality. Furthermore, I included a meteorite image over planet Earth with a magnifying glass effect, supporting the idea that the space object had reached the planet’s surface.
