How can we create beautiful and informative data visualizations that everyone understands?

How can we create beautiful and informative data visualizations that everyone understands? | The Visual Brain: Teaching&Learning with Images | Scoop.it

An Infographic About Infographics | The Visual Brain: Teaching&Learning with Images | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words, and Californian digital marketing agency, Bixa Media, have illustrated (pun intended) by creating an infographic about the importance of… well, infographics.
