25. Learning About Infographics

If you listened to my suggestion, you spent the last hour listening to Neil Gaiman.

I promise you, this next video will be short.

I wanted to introduce you to different kind of storytelling medium, infographics. What is an infographic, you might ask, basically it is a way of displaying complex information in a graphical form. Think of street signs you’ve driven past and the charts you see on the nightly news. For a better explanation, point your Internet machines over to this article (excerpted here) which will tell you all about it,

Infographics are traditionally viewed as visual elements such as signs, charts, maps, or diagrams that aid comprehension of a given text-based content. Often more powerful than words or imagery alone, infographics utilize visual elements of design and words to convey a message in such a way that context, meaning and understanding are transcended to the observer in a manner not previously experienced. However, visual representation of information can be more than just the manner in which we are able to record what has been discovered by other means. They have the potential to become the process by which we can discern new meaning and discover new knowledge.

Sometimes the only effective way to tell a story, especially when time or space is an issue, is through a graphic. Take for example the story above, of a trip to the airport, told entirely through infographics commonly found in airports.
