11 Infographics About Infographics

by Drew Skau 1 year ago Filed Under: Design

People who create infographics do their work partly because they believe infographics are a great way to communicate information. Since the people in this field also need to communicate information about their work, it was inevitable that infographics about infographics would eventually be created. Here are 11 of these meta infographics.

  1. Infographics are still new to many people, and what better way to explain what they are to someone than with a Euler diagram? Information, Illustration, and Design does just that.
  2. Infographics often contain data visualizations, and this diagram shows just what a data visualization is.
  3. Now that we know what they are, we need to know what makes an infographic good.
  4. And it would also be useful to know the steps to making one.
  5. For a slightly more humorous take on creation, there’s also SEOmoz’s guide.
  6. The state of infographics shows where they fit into current online culture, and what they are good for.
  7. And the infographic of infographics covers an analysis of 49 infographics.
  8. But why would you need an infographic? Never fear, there’s an infographic to answer that too!
  9. An anecdotal approach is not typical for good infographics, but the Most Popular Infographics is done in jest, so we’ll let it slide.
  10. And in case you needed a graphic to test your abilities at using infographics, Are You Good at Following Flow Charts? is perfect for you.
  11. We’ll leave you with this fun Venn diagram that not only refers to venn diagrams, but also refers to the media it was created in.
