January 20th, 2013 No comments

I am always astounded by the creativity and simplicity  of some of the visual representations that folks come up with.  For these visual representations to work for me, they need to convey the information simply and allow me to absorb it in seconds.  And then I came across this infographic on what makes a visual representation work and how to create your own.
