In my word map, the strategy I used to create hierarchy was to first create two major sections, Sports and Video Games because these are the two main things that have made me who I am today. I then created subcategories with different fonts and colors to indicate their importance.
The challenging part about using only text for this design was figuring out the spacing and balance of the entire design. The type tool was fairly easy to use after a little bit of practice.
I would say that my design is fairly balanced and the rhythm of the design is unbothered. One could look at my design and easily understand where to begin reading. The different font styles, as well as the different colors used for the texts are what give my design a little bit of texture.
