An infographic, or information graphic, is designed to convey a huge set of data in a fraction of the time that it takes to wade through a dense, numbers-heavy paragraph. The best ones are also entertaining. We have witnessed a lot of trends in infographics - common aesthetics and typography.
But creating an effective infographic is much more difficult than just arranging a few charts around a cartoon character.
