the future of infographics [or not]…

As much as I’m a dataviz nut I really really want companies to move away from the below format. This format isn’t effective and is more limiting than useful. I challenge marketers and designers to disrupt the infographic err info-poster scene and try to do something innovative.

As Alberto Cairo and many others confirm, the visual representation of information needs to be guided by the information itself. What information exists that can only be communicated by 1240 x 1750 pixels?

Let’s face it…we’re all tired of these so I DARE you to try something new. #endrant

Thanks to one of my favorite sites and past colleagues for sharing this with me!
