40 Useful and Creative Infographics

July29

Using infographics just for the sake of it is like writing a book if you have nothing to say. The graphics must get across something of worth and usually find a way of transferring a significant volume of information in a concise manner that is more useful than plain text. The real skill of the journalist is to define what from the story requires infographics and how this should be done. Too many times the graphics are slapped on with little thought for why or how they are useful.
Here are some great examples that do both of the above at the fantastic Six Revisions website.
