This is a shout out to all you info-addicts. Everyday, people are absorbing information, facts, figures and general know how, in an attempt to cram what they’ve heard, seen, read and experienced into our little noggins (hopefully as a means to end). But the ability to gather information and make it look visually coherent is another story altogether. These visual aids are called infographics and they my friends, when done right, are great. From time to time, we may even be caught clapping incessantly at the computer screen in delight of their utter brilliance. So say sayonara to your humble pie chart and good riddance to those mundane bar graphs because quite frankly, we think you can do better.
In the image above, a designer has mapped out a 3D info graphic of his own Facebook network. Pretty cool, hey. Have a peek when you’re next out and about, from traffic signs to transit maps, info graphics can be found in the most obscure places. They could already be communicating information to you without you even realizing. Told you they were awesome. We just created a pretty cool social media infographic ourselves – you should really check it out.
