Eye Candy that’s Nutritious: Infographics!

Infographics have gained a lot of traction as visually stunning and engaging ways to share and communicate information online and in print. Examples of data visualization date as early as 1858, with Florence Nightingale’s “Diagram of the Causes of Mortality” and the works of William Playfair, who are considered the fathers of charts and diagrams.

Infographics are easily digestible, attractive, and memorable visual tools for communicating complex information. Clever and creative charts and diagrams make the information visually stimulating.
