Information graphics or Infographics are graphic visual communication of information, data or knowledge. Strong Infographics should illuminate information, that usually would be too complex or dull, in text form such as stats or processes. In recent years, infographics have become popular with designers and are broadly used to communicate information in a creative, compact way.
The Attitude team have put together examples that we have found impacting, informative, inspiring or humorous. Enjoy.
1. Carbs are killing you
‘Carbs are Killing You’ was created in collaboration with Massive Health, showing how carbohydrates make you put on weight rather than fatty foods. Our design team loves this humorous approach to healthy eating, so that rather than being a chore, it looks fun, innovative and is easy to read.View full version here. Graphic By columnfivemedia.
2. Take the fast lane
This hip infographic arranges survey results around a race track to display the benefits of CODA electric vehicles. The circular track and composition leads the eye on a journey from one key point to the next. Information is separated into 4 muted colours with modern illustrations to make the overall graphic visually interesting but not overpowering.
3. Small Cover
This poster depicts survey results based on the importance of health insurance. The simple monochrome colour scheme is very bold and accentuates the intricacy of the serif typeface, especially the numbers furled around the tree branches.
4. Waiting Time is wasting time
The Attitude team love this simple graphic, especially the bright colour contrast on the black background and the unique circle comparisons of each time value!
5. Manual Photography
A definite favourite of the team, this handy infographic is plain cool. The retro design and beautiful typography is clear
A useful guide when making the decision wether or not to trust a hairy stranger. This graphic is funny, relatable and plays on iconic beard/moustache styles.
7. 3D Pattern Matters
Woah! This handmade infographic looks amazing, especially with its 3-dimensional quality. Each block is individually hand-crafted from paper, and glued together to create these miniature graphics. How original!
Although the ‘info’ in ‘inforgraphic has been removed in this example, the beautifully broken down compositions mimic and twist the standard forms found in information graphs. This inspiring break down looks outside the box and is a thought cloud of visual ideas!
9. Are you happy?
Big statement, very few words. We love how this powerful yet simple concept is reflected perfectly as the designer treats it with the process of elimination. The process of elimination is usually used to filter through a complexity of options, but this graphic plays on this process to exaggerate how simple the conclusion really is. 1 + 2 = 3.
10. Piggy Trouble
This swine flu infographic is full of quirky patterns and illustrations. The Attitude Team love the use of characters to add humour making the topic seem a lot less dull!
So there you have it, hope you are feeling inspired (and informed on various topics!)
