RB013 – Ribbon Flow 013 – Figure 8

The figure 8 on its side is a symbol for infinity, but when segmented it can illustrate a conceptual message as well. The series example depicts a virtuous cycle comprised of two separate but connected sets of activities. These graphics are not easily drawn in PowerPoint – and they're not easily drawn in other graphics programs because of the overlap – but they are useful in vividly illustrating cycles around two pivot points or a single cycle that capitalizes on the "infinity" message. Although the two parts overlap, some of the variations may be used to illustrate an intersection.

Because of the overlap, the continuous, 1-segment, and 2-segment variations are not drawn as individual segments. The segment fills and lines are comprised of several fields. The segments in the 3- through 12-segment variations are all drawn as separate and individual segments comprised of only 1 field.

This series contains figure-8 variations without wings. If you want wings (arrowheads), refer to RB014.

The tutorial has good tips on usage and formatting techniques.
