Steppy_steph was fantastic to work with. She produced an original and fantastic design from the outset and responded very quickly to my feedback. I would work with Steppy_steph again and recommend her to other people.
Shashank was able to understand my design concept, and put it into a tangible form that represented the idea. Great Work! For improvements, I would suggest trying more color combinations during each iteration to save time for everyone, and reduce the amount of back and forths.

Australia is the third biggest recipient of its own foreign aid. The aim of this infographic is to highlight this fact.
The Australian government allocated $5.2 billion to foreign aid in the latest budget. In December 2012 they announced that $375 million of this would be diverted to pay the costs of asylum seekers arriving in Australia. This decision has made Australia the third biggest recipient of its own foreign aid.
Thelist below shows the largest recipients of Australian aid and the amount of aid they receive. Indonesia is the largest recipient followed by PNG and then Australia.
Indonesia - $540.1m
PNG - $493.2m
Australia - $375.1m
The amount of aid that Australia receives is just over the combined amount that the bottom 19 aid recipient countries receive (they receive a total of $358.9m).
A full list of all the countries that receive Australian aid and how much they get is attached as an additional document.
This infographic should focus on the amount of aid that Australia receives and the third place ranking of Australia. A suggested title for this infographic is ‘Charity begins at home’ .
The aim of this infographic is not to graph the amount of aid each country receives. You should represent the amount of countries that you think is graphically powerful. It should be simple and clear and focused towards highlighting the third place ranking of Australia.
