In the age of rapid information and social media, it’s becoming more and more difficult to hold and audience’s attention, whether your classmates or even your professor! Enter: The Infographic.
An infographic is just what its name implies. It is a way to visually represent information using graphics and design; a marriage of both sides of the brain to engage all types of individuals.
When that next research project or class presentation comes around, don’t just tell your reader stats and figures…SHOW them! Have some cool stats and design know-how, then give it a try! It’s a great way to help others really digest the information and metrics at hand.
Here are some great infographics that I have shared with friends and a ‘How to’ resource.
