Companies successfully use infographics to generate publicity for a brand or cause, through blogging or social networking sites, or through a press release. IGs have the knack of getting to the point visually and extending the life and context of a press article as they can provide details interestingly and be shared, commented on and discussed.
Infographics have functioned as “visual shorthand” that serves a definite purpose – to communicate. From the first cave paintings to Egyptian hieroglyphs, to maps on trains, to icons for the Munich Olympics (which have now been adopted into daily life, such as in the traffic signal for “Walk”), to the graphics used in newspapers to tell a story, to animated, scrollable, colourful, illustrated, interactive and highly detailed infographics on the Web – IGs have changed over time to reflect the social and cultural environment in which they have grown.
Infographics create a visual story out of data. They are effectively used for presentations, worksheets, reports and tracking tools and to enhance editorial content in magazines and websites. On the web you can even find fascinating animated , interactive and motion infographics.
