« A patently pointless picture | Main | An infographic showing up here for the right reason »



Personally, although not ideal, I think there's a place for infographics when done well and can help people engage with data that would otherwise be turned off.

This one made me want to set fire to my face so I didn't have to look at it.


I couldn't agree with this more! I got the new Consumer Reports and felt that it was so scatter brained and I would much rather see the old bar graphs (or some well-thought of compromise). Thanks!!
