Infographics and beyond: visualizing data, processes, and abstract ideas while avoiding confusion

Infographics and beyond: visualizing data, processes, and abstract ideas while avoiding confusion

Visual content should be an integral part of business communications. Most people are overloaded with written communications that they have no time to read. Research shows that most of the information transmitted to the brain is visual, and people process visuals much faster than text. After three days, visuals have 50% message retention, compared to bullet points at only 10%. High-quality visuals are flexible enough to be used across the full range of communications material, including press releases, reports, presentations, and social media.

In this webinar we will look at the content development process that leads to creation of visuals commonly referred to as infographics. We will cover:

  • Different types of information visualization
  • Selecting content appropriate for visualization
  • Analyzing and grouping content that can be used to create infographics
  • Visually communicating abstract concepts
  • Avoiding confusion
