Week Eleven–Infographics

November 19, 2010 paigewalters

So, what are infographics? Information graphics, or infographics for short, quickly and clearly explain a large amount of information. Lisa Angelettie’s blog explaining infographics refers to The Mint website because it uses infographics really well, and I certainly agree with her (go see for yourself!!). Inforgraphics display/portray facts and complicated matters such as figure estimates. They use symbols and are primarily used to keep things simple, clear and understandable. Infographics are in the form of charts and graphs. The Cool Infographics website also shows many different ways infographics can be used. They can show populations, opinions, voting patterns and interests. One can create an inforgraphic by making a chart or graph on Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.

    I believe that infographics are very important to the success of a company. They are a great way to reach a lot of people and a target audience.
