With a PhD in wartime posters, and a real joy in using social media, is it any surprise that I love infographics?!  London Transport of course was one of the first to use short-hand graphics in their iconic Underground map, and much graphic design relies upon visual representations of information, data or knowledge, with the visual providing a shorthand, enabling complex information to be understood clearly and easily.

@Jas collects some great “infoporn“, and today I came across 15 great infographics from @econsultancy (building upon an entry they made in December 2009)…. A response to this blog also alerted me to “Visual Loop” – great images – as the oft quoted phrase has it – “a picture speaks a thousand words” – and I wonder if we can see the social media effect at work here!
