Information graphics—also known as “infographics”—are visual representations of information and data designed to engage audiences while delivering efficient communications. They surround us every day in the form of maps, graphs, and diagrams that serve to communicate to and guide us. These visualizations are represented by simple pie charts, complex maps, and visuals that detail data over time. Infographics are used in nearly every industry, including journalism, entertainment, education, marketing, and business. Focus on merging data, technology, and design to convey exciting, engaging, and informative imagery. Gather data, identify the “story” points, and use digital design tools to create infographics for target audiences.
