For some time now I’ve been stumbling across infographics via various app based platforms and gobbling up a wide range of interesting, useful (and useless) information in a easily digestible way on topics ranging from Star Wars vs Star Trek, the wonders of Wales and the properties of poo.
I have to admit I’m a big fan of infographics. I don’t know if it’s the visual medium or the fact that you can find some trivia nuggets – whatever the reason I find them engaging and I’m confident they can be a useful tool for comms.
For a few months I’ve been looking for a way to start a discussion on how we can make better use of them and then Paul Edmonds from Cwm Taf Health Board shared the example below. He’s keen to point out that this is a first draft and some of the figures still need to be confirmed before it should be served up for public consumption.
But I think you’ll agree, it’s a pretty good appetizer. For those keen to chew on some more thoughts on infographics, tools and what to consider when creating them I came across this blog (16 tools to make awesome infographics) which may be of interest.
Have a look at Paul’s efforts and share your thoughts.
