20 Best Infographics To Inspire Content Marketers | Newscred Blog | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The best infographics of 2015 are some of content marketing’s finest examples of visually engaging content. As platforms for content continue to proliferate, it’s important to test new content types while also continuing to utilize those that have served you well in the past. Infographics might not be as sexy as vines or videos, but they are solid, tried-and-true options.


Since 90% of the information we take into our brains is visual, it makes sense that these are among the best content types to deploy. As Adobe’s Social Intelligence report noted, posts that have images are 600x more likely to be shared on social media and to receive engagement elsewhere.


Here are the brands and publications that provided us with the best infographics of 2015....

With infographics taking centrestage and print taking a backseat, it is becoming increasingly important to try and understand what makes a good infographic! Design apart, a good  inforgraphic should have relevance, with-it-ness, the correct accent, the right attitude, mindfulness and most important of all, it should not  hurt sentiments.

How Complex Systems And Chaos Theory Work, According To Emoji

How Complex Systems And Chaos Theory Work, According To Emoji | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Emoji are a great way to express yourself. Through Simulating the World, the latest interactive web toy by artist Nicky Case, they're more than just cute stickers. They become a tool for thinking about systems, illuminating how everything from forest fires to flu pandemics start, or spread out of control.

 

Simulating the World is a time-lapsed grid that is semi-randomly populated with whatever emoji you choose, according to certain user-defined rules: what happens when an emoji spawns to another emoji that is different, for example. It doesn't sound like much, but used intelligently, this emoji grid is enough to simulate, if not predict, how all sorts of systems work: how a bolt of lightning can decimate a forest during a drought year, for example, or how neighborhoods can desegregate over time....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

How do neighborhoods become segregated, forest fires spread, and herd immunity work? Emoji can help explain it all. Cool design you'd never suspect.
