This infographic explains the 5 stages of the human sleep cycle, and also provides information on the relative amounts of sleep humans need at different stages of life. Blue and purple colors help evoke a restful mood, but more muted tones could achieve this even more effectively. The text of this infographic stays mostly focused on the main subject, although there are noticeable inconsistencies and grammatical errors. This infographic misses an opportunity to add visual elements to represent the theme of sleep or dreaming. Each stage of sleep could be paired with an icon, or even comparative illustrations of brainwaves in each stage. The design style of the icons in the "Recommended Hours" section is different from the simpler designs throughout the rest of the infographic, making it appear visually inconsistent. Overall, an evocative color palette and engaging subject matter are let down by lack of visual emphasis and attention to detail. We'd give this a D.
