Michael Magee got their new infographic by running a design contest:
Peak Lawn Wants to Make Landscaping More Interesting
Check out Michael Magee's Infographic contest…
Story to tell in the infographic
We are a landscaping company. We want to raise the bar on communicating with the customer. We want create a pair of up-dateable documents: A QUOTE and a Sercice Report STATEMENT. For now just focus on the service report STATEMENT. The service report is a detailed statement showing that a service was done, what was done, and what needs to be done. It has lots of bits of info pertaining to the lawn/service. We want the statement to be in the form of a easy to read, graphical form. It must be flexible in that each customer's data must be able be worked in to the "statement-graphic" such as rain report, soil test results, date of service, types of plans and pruning schedule. Grass type. mow schedule and so on. We will be sending the statement each week to the customer.
Data to include in the infographic
See Excel Spreadsheet attached for a over idea of the Service Report. The service report will be sent according to the service schedule for that customer. Generally weekly or bi-weekly. Data Element 1 : Service Date – Value is a Date Data Element 2: Service Frequency – Possible values are (Weekly, Biweekly, Single) Data Element 3: Customer Contact – This is their name Data Element 4: Billing Address – Address Data Element 5: Service Address – Address Data Element6: Next Service Date – Date Data Element 7: Services Performed this visit. This is a table of sorts. There are several services that might have been performed (soil test, mow, fertilization, pest control, lime, aeration, seeding, pruning, leaf removal, blowing, trimming, week control) For this element would like a graphic that we can edi t to show what was done this service and what is planned for next service. Data Element 8: Weekly Precipitation - This is two numbers. The first is the normal and the second is the actual. We will update this numbers each week. But would be best shown as some kind of scale or graphic. The range is 0”-10”+. Data Element 9: Soil Test. - There are 3 main data points in a soil test. See attached test. pH, Phosphorus (P-I) and Potassium (K-I). There is a optimal range. We want to show where their results land in relation to the optimal range. Attached test results show that. Data Element 10: is their yearlyTURF (grass) service schedule. This should show for all the services and treatments what months they should be done. Soil Test, Mowing, Fertilization, Pest Control, Lime Aeration/Seed, Watering. The services don't change, but the schedule for each one might depending on the turf type. This is sort of a grid. Data element 11: a pruning schedule. This is a list that might have 1 to 5 different plant species listed. We may group some. We need to show what months the pruning is recommended and also the month we plan to do it(show as a circle on our example.) Looking for bar graphcs, or icons that indicate those points.
Elements to include in the infographic
You know when you get a statement from your credit card company, gas company, electric company so on, they are boring and somewhat hard to read. We want to take the service statement to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL. We have lots of information to communicate with our customers, and want them to have a good looking, easy to interpret statement. We think the infographic style is the perfect medium to do that. These info graphics are a template of sorts that data will be entered by us. First to create a quote for our services and second to provide details on weekly basis on their service. We are requesting this as an info graphic project because we want it to have the look and feel of an info graphic.
Would like the to use graphic elements like rain drops, calendars, beaker (for testing results), grass, trees, try to make a boring quote and and boring landscaping service report interesting and engaging. dont forget, it needs to be dynamic because each customer has different requirements. But keep a standard layout. We have AI and with the right design, we can work with it to update for our customers. ie move graphics, update numbers, add remove graphics etc. Details on attachments: Pl.ai is our logo. But we have changed the colors. That is where Round magnet comes in. It is just to show you the new colors we use. Also, a little look at feel. We use IMPACT font. Report.zip contains a excel sheet. This gives your our vision. We dont want a redo of our excel bars and such. That is where you come in. Use infographic style to communicate the data. The Soil sample is what we get from the goverment test org. Is has graphs to show the current and acceptable range for the fertilizer.
