How to Make an Infographic Worth a Thousand Words

How to Make an Infographic Worth a Thousand Words | Visualization Techniques and Practice | Scoop.it

As the old saying goes about pictures being "worth a thousand words," so goes the story about infographics.


Infographics are a compelling way to represent complex information quickly and clearly.

Storytelling is using a linear narrative to guide people- as the creative and performance marketing communities work together to make sense of data, we must not squander the opportunity that this format provides. We need to create meaningful infographics that minimize information anxiety by conveying the perspective in the most effective manner. Agencies are tasked with providing creative expressions that connect target audiences with meaningful content -- and infographics are by no means any different.
