Infographics are a visual representation of information which can range drastically in their complexities, yet will always (at least attempt to) provide an instant and often universal explanation. Let�۪s see, shall we? 287 Infographics examined during the making of this infographic. That�۪s a lot of freakin info Arrows point to stuff. See that big text there? yeah. you did. cause it�۪s big. that is what makes it look important no matter what the content is. Diagramas Rule- especially when they are about your typical elements found in infographics. captivating, reading? ooo shiny! typography, eye sore, yay for infographics, graphics, boring, waste ���o�۪, irrelevant Infographics use maps to overgeneralize stuff. Cities where stuff happens. Places these cities don�۪t care about. 1 in 5 people are displayed this way in infographics. wtf? this is the same graph only in pie shape form. this was done to over emphasize a very simple point but now you think it�۪s really important. likelihood of seeing a cool angled bar graph 25% 05% 60% 10% typography along a path is dizzying- 3D graphs possess the power to make any and all data more credible because it looks complicated. horray!! less :( More! 5 hours/ 5 min amout of time it took to make this infographic as opposed to writing out these points.
