How Infographics Illustrate Completed Data through Graphics

It’s that time again for another design update. For those that are stopping by for the first time, I try and do a weekly article about design that will be useful everyday website owners and bloggers build a better site through design. Sometimes these articles are for beginners and sometimes they are for advances users, or they purely inspirational but all are useful and can help to build a better site.

Today, I want to talk about Infographics. Infographics are graphical representations of information. Designers use graphics along with complex data together to create an information graphic. By doing this you can quickly put a lot of information in an easy to read format for your readers.

You can find infographics almost anywhere. You can find them driving down the road, maps, statistical reports, and in the scientific world. For me, I use infographics when I creat content for articles and when I am brainstorming new design projects. Of course I never release them with my work, they are usually pencil drawn chicken scratch that I use to generate and build on an idea for the design and it gets trashed at the end of a project.

Infographic Examples

There are thousands of infographics available to us. Some them are inspirating and some of them are not. Today I gathered up seven of the best articles found on DesignGizer and The Web Blend. Within these lists you will find some of the best info-graphic examples created by designers from around the world.

I came across this article over at The Web Blend bookmarking site a few months back. This has some interesting exmaples. They are well done and very very detailed. Out of the fifteen listed, my favorite two are the Google Social media Timeline and Facts About Facebook. I like these because, they stuck with the company color themes and used company / brand logos whenever they could. Both are easy to read and understand.

    I’m really very conscious about my site’s design and thats why I keep changing it from time to time. And I believe its not a good idea. But this quick round-up of infographics will help me translate my niche into my design and I think I would finally be able to finalize my design.
