Infographics (or Informational Graphics) are a very popular way of conveying a large amount of detailed information in a very easy to read format. It is true that a picture speaks a thousand words and in today’s market of information overload and graphical information is far more likely to be absorbed than textual. A common use for infographics is to support survey results and press releases and I recently designed one for my client Six Degrees PR (part of Eurocom Worldwide – The Global PR Network). It was to support a worldwide survey which found that one in five technology firms has rejected a job applicant because of their social media profile.
