Infographics, Data Visualization, & Diagrams
Communicating visually is the most effective way to explain and educate.
We live in a complex world, bombarded by information. Visuals resonate with people. Our brains are wired to process visual information and infographics are a great tool to help our brains process that information.
At their essence, infographics are a form of visual communication. Infographics, data visualizations, and diagrams have the capacity to help us understand and make sense of complex topics. In his book, The Functional Art, Alberto Cairo argues that infographics are a “tool for our eyes and brains to perceive what lies beyond their natural reach.” So, in a very real way, infographics, data visualization, and diagrams can help us make sense of the complex world.
Some recent examples of infographics, data visualization, and diagrams that I’ve created.
