So, the first two lectures covered the history of infographic. It’s interesting to think that cave paintings and Egyptian heiroglyphics were in a way an early form of infographics! I found a timeline showing the evolution of infographic.
Guardian has more examples for old-day infographics. Check it out and see how cool they are!
We are all suffered from information overload. Out there, there are too many to read and pay attention to. When it comes to data, number or statistic, it further drives us crazy. But thanks to visualization of information, it allows me to see the pattern and the connection among matters.
Information now can turn into landscapes that I can explore with my eyes. I have personally indulged in collecting pieces of graphic in Pinterest and Internet.
Yea. Infographics always bring surprise to me and I am looking forward to learning more about this amazing story-telling tool!
