The Life and Times of Windows XP - Infographic

Working with Dell we created this infographic to illustrate the "End" of Windows XP. I thought we could include a timeline illustrating the major milestone events (of which there were a few) and showcase the unit sales of XP machines over the same time period. 

On paper it seemed like a complex set of data points which had no real collection to each other save for the dates they shared. Using a vector background meant to evoke the famous "Bliss" wallpaper of Windows XP, I divided the data into sections and drew lines to illustrate their connections to each other.

I created illustrations of the physical shape of the PC form over time to create that feeling of progress, and using colour theory I selected a "sweet shop" palette intended to make the infographic enticing enough to eat.
