I'm working on an infographic that depicts a satellite "beaming" down a video signal to a receiver on planet Earth.
How exactly would one design this video signal? I don't want the viewer to think the beam is a laser beam, and I don't want it to look like a particle beam, or a light beam from a UFO, etc.
How would you draw/illustrate a beam or streak that conveys to the user that it can't be seen by the naked eye, yet, it illustrates that data is being transmitted?
Also, if anyone knows of a Photoshop tutorial out there that I could follow to create it, that would be great! Thanks for your time.
