What Is An Infographic? by Infographiclabs
Infographics visually represent data, information, knowledge, and arguments. Infographics tell complex stories by combining a variety of charts, graphs, timelines, and other tools known as assets. They exploit elements of design to synthesize large amounts of information, to point to connections and patterns, using visual strategies that make it easy for the viewer to digest and understand.
