I searched some infographics to get inspiration for this upcoming project. Needless to say, I came across some really good ones and some really bad ones. Then, I came across some that I wasn't sure about. Here's an example...

I thought this was interesting because it discusses the outbreak history of swine flu, its different phases, the effects on humans, treatment in humans and piggies, and more. I also thought it was cute, which is probably why I was drawn to it. I think it works, but I also think some of the images aren't really necessary. Then again, the images add to the playfulness of a serious subject, and I think that's what the designer wanted to convey. I think I'm just torn. Click here to get a better view of this infographic.

Anywho, I came across a really bad infographic. One that I know is bad. Here it is.

Can you say YUCK? If I saw this in a publication, I would surely keep it moving. That is all about this one. If anyone wants a clearer view of this infographic, click here. Let me know what it's about. Thx!

  1. I really like the Piggy Trouble infographic. The bright pink on black with shades of gray caught my eye. You're right - some of the images aren't essential to the information but it's not distracting to me. I like all the little characters and their wandering eyes. Maybe it's not the MOST professional infographic out there for swine flu, but it's the cutest one I've seen so far.
