Description

Infographics has the main mission to simplify information in a visually engaging way in order to attract and inform a large audience. The word infographics means a graphic design that combines in one data visualizations, illustrations, text, and images that tells a complete story.

Abstract

The power of infographics is that it keeps things simple. Instead of having to deal with some 50-page report, you could present things in one or two pages of info graphics, which are followed by a few sentences, which interpret key data.

 

People learn and remember best through pictures, not through written or spoken words. Humans have been drawing pictures to communicate with each other for thousands of years—from pictograms on cave walls to Egyptian hieroglyphics to ideograms on modern signs.

 

If you’ve read a newspaper or blog, flipped through a magazine, or used social media recently, you’ve likely come across infographics—those self-contained pictorials that tell you the gist of a story or concept at a glance. You’ve probably heard the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words,” a manifesto that speaks to the value and efficiency of visual communication.
