Using graphics to help display information is not a new concept, it has been around for centuries. These days, however, it is becoming a strategic marketing tool and art form all its own. People have different views of infographics, they are picky about them just as they would be a painting. Some graphics have almost no text whatsoever, leaving the entire concept it is trying to get across up to the viewer to understand. Other infographics use imagery to help relay statistics and to entertain the viewer.
