WHAT IS AN INFOGRAPHIC?
1. It's a visual explanation that helps you more easily understand, find or do something.

2. It's visual, and when necessary, integrates words and pictures in a fluid, dynamic way.

3. It stands alone and is completely self-explanatory.

4. It reveals information that was formerly hidden or submerged.

5. It makes possible faster, more consistent understanding.

6. It's universally understandable.

From Dave Gray's Blog Communication
