30 ways of visualizing the Infographic frenzy

Inspired Magazine's new infographic compilation is out.

July 10, 2012

Our most recent contribution for Inspired Magazine is out! And we’ve chosen the ongoing discussion about the use of Infographics for SEO and all the criticism surrounding it. Data visualisation experts and visual journalists often warn about the misuse of the term ‘infographic’ itself, and the perils of letting this frenzy go to far.

You’ll find visual explanations from both ends of the discussion. Some are funny, sarcastic, while others try to provide some knowledge, like this one from Audree Lapierre, that’s been around for some time, but is still one of the best attempts to demonstrate how vast and complex is this field.

From the post:

It’s been a while since the whole ‘good/bad infographics’ discussion started. The use of this powerful communication tool for SEO has practically created a new market for design agencies and freelancers, with many companies ‘trying out’ an infographic as a way of bringing visitors to their sites. And, like in every other market, there’s the good, the average, and the bad.

So, if you have an oppinion about this topic, head out to Inspired Magazine’s website, and leave your comment!
