This infographic submission provides a brief history of the Chanel 2.55 bag. By using the years as subheaders with their own type treatment, the reader understands quickly that this infographic functions as a timeline. It's laid out in a clear, easy-to-follow way because of this as well. Pairing each section of text with a visual is a good strategy. The circular elements with photos do feel a little inconsistent. The first is a total fill in black and white, while three others are centered on a white background, another is a closeup, and the last has a box design background. This would benefit from a new visual direction, possibly one that is illustrative rather than photo-based. This is a luxury item, but the infographic doesn't capture that same style. Overall, we give this a C.
