I kind of hate infographics. Seems like everybody who owns a copy of Photoshop thinks they should make one and tweet about it. I’ve looked at a lot of them lately. Is it a fad?
Of the ones I’ve seen, maybe 3 were effective and the rest were impossible. Translated, here’s what I mean by impossible:
- they were too busy to view on a computer screen
- the text was too small to read on a computer screen
- there was too much text
- it was too complicated to have any impact
A nice, clear paragraph would make more sense than some of the infographics I’ve seen.
Can you mention some good examples?
