Enter the rise of the Infographics, turning raw hard facts into something that is fun, engaging and easy to understand.
There are some great websites out there such as Good Infographics, Daily Infographic and Cool Infographics which are dedicated to highlighting examples of Infographics and with new content added daily, sites like these offer some spectacular uses of data converted to beautiful illustration.
With the rise of Infographics it has also opened up a new marketable product to businesses wanting to simplify complicated data for public use, presentations or educational purposes. Companies such as Pikto Chart crunch your data into beautifully illustrated infographics turning dull data into instant awesomeness.
It's not only big businesses getting in on this trend, other sites such a Visual.ly offer the option to transform data from a twitter, facebook, google or youtube account and transform it into an all-in-one visually aesthetic presentation. If you're a designer, creating Infographics could be a great addition to your work portfolio.
