patrick.mcadams got their new infographic by running a design contest:
The War for Tech Talent: How 30 Top Firms Stack Up
Check out patrick.mcadams's Infographic contest…
Story to tell in the infographic
We are creating an infographic report which will compare the hiring trends and practices of 30 of the top technology firms. Though we want an infographic style, it will ultimately be presented as a slideshow (as you'll see in the link below). I have a few specs attached as well as a link to the the last Infographic we created (http://www.slideshare.net/PatrickMcAdams/competing-for-fintech-talent-recruiting-hiring-quarter-1-2014). This project will be somewhat similar to the last one, so I included a .psd file of the last one (pages 1, 3 & 4) which may be used as a starting point. We are including more information on each of the companies in this report, so we'll need more data to show up on each page than what we had last time. I included a rough drawing of what I am hoping for in terms of layout. (IMPORTANT) this is targeted to a tech audience rather than a financial services tech audience, so we need it to look a bit more fun and light than what we had last time. We NEED to have this done in Photoshop and the final design sent with all layers (well labeled and organized) For the initial design we are looking for someone to show what they would do for page 1 (cover), page 3 (company comparison & overview) and page 4 (company analysis) - Company Analysis is the most important page. The new title for the cover page will be "The War for Tech Talent" The sub-title will be "How 30 Top Firms Stack Up - Quarter 2, 2014" After we select a winner we will NEED to have all of the Company Comparison & Overview pages as well as the Company Analysis pages populated with the final data (30 companies, 15 pages). <p style="font-style: normal; font-size: 13.63636302947998px; line-height: 17.81818199157715px; font-family: sans-serif;">I am most interested in seeing what you do with pages 4 and 3 ( 4-Analysis.psd and 3-Comparison.psd below). I generally like the following styles for infographic design: http://www.creditreport.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/infographic.jpg http://freedesignfile.com/13639-set-of-chart-and-infographics-design-elements-vector-04/ http://www.fullsteam.com/portfolio/detail/365-infographic-poster-design http://d1r5i20o8cadcu.cloudfront.net/designs/images/25060/original/sosweetcreative-infographic2012-880px.jpg http://e.fastcompany.net/multisite_files/codesign/imagecache/inline-zoom/post-inline/inline-zoom-1-Pinterest_Infographic.jpg http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-189670625/stock-vector-infographic-elements-world-map-and-information-graphics-vector.html?src=GMMZfV77vriUWq4-g6OPbg-2-14
Data to include in the infographic
Dummy data can be used at this point (using the spec provided). All of the data for each of the 30 companies will be provided to whoever wins the competition at which point the winner will populate all 15 pages (30 companies, 2 per page).

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their infographic.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
patrick.mcadams collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
