A Picture’s Worth 1,000 Words

My reason for posting this infograph seems to be completely opposite from most people. What I like about this infograph is the lack of information it SEEMS to present. As a person who doesn’t care for numbers, I won’t stare at any type of informative chart too long… pictures included or otherwise. This infograph appears to just be a photograph of various stamps (which may catch someone’s eye for no specific reason at all, beyond curiousity… at least, that’s what it did for me). It isn’t until further inspection that you read the paragprahs at the top and take note of the color coordination signaling at the information being presented.

That is why I chose this infographic. In my opinion, an effective infograph makes the information presented seem lighter than it may be and makes the absorption of the material a fun experience… that is what this infograph did for me. Clicking the picture will direct you to the site in which I found it on.

Stamp of Approval
