Trendy Tuesday: Infographics

Infographics. Stop talking and show me.

Back to the days of cave drawings, humans have always relied on symbols for communication. And today, in a world of information overload, we now, more than ever, seek freedom from data with the relief and clarity of a picture.

A visual digestion of otherwise complicated information, infographics have moved from a communications concept into an actual job category: an artful balance of science and design. In a recent Ad Age Stat Q&A series with infographic pioneer Edward Tufte, the emergence of data visualization as a field is simply stated by Tufte, “…overload, clutter, and confusion are not attributes of information, they are failures of design.”

Aside from the obvious pictograms that we encounter daily (maps, weather reports, etc.), industries are adapting the method as a simplified solution to data dump. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

For today’s Trendy Tuesday, we’ll stop talking and show you some of our favorite infographics.
