Data visualization has come a long way since the days of pie charts and bar graphs. These days, if you need visual representations of information, all you have to do is create an eye-catching infographic. Modern infographics still incorporate pie charts and bar graphs, although with more eye-candy and designs that “pop!”. The rise of social media and content marketing has also increased the popularity of infographics. Aside from making it easy for Internet users to read and understand information, infographics are also shareable. Almost every website is now using infographics for various purposes - to establish their brands, educate their visitors or optimize their search rankings (infographics are good link bait).
But not everyone is a fan of Infographics. The problem is that since it has become a trend, many people think that creating infographics would simply require them to mix images and some fancy fonts together. But this is not the case. Keep in mind that if you have to do it, do it well.
