Design: Infographics

Infographic with no information

Information graphics reveal a big amount of information. It filters what is important, establishes relationships and enables the viewer to construct meaningful knowledge. As it has been increasingly used, it has become more and more complex.
Today information graphics surround us in the media, in published works both pedestrian and scientific, in road signs and manuals. They illustrate information that would be unwieldy in text form, and act as a visual shorthand for everyday concepts.

These are some examples of my own that I used to explain an architecture project I designed at Illinois Institute of Technology: Hostel and Arts Center,  Queretaro (Mexico)

Anything is better explained through an infographic. Since I recently had to design some infographics I compiled some of the best  I found online when I was trying to get inspired. Hope they are helpful to you aswell!
