My instructor in another class shared a link to a business presentation called “The State of the Internet.” Before it was posted online, the presentation had been given at a “major media company,” according to the introduction.
What interested me was that at least 75% of it consisted of charts — bar charts, line charts, pie charts, area graphs. The large proportion of charts showed me how important charts are in business communications. I wonder when businesses choose to make charts with Excel and when they employ people trained in information graphics…
Well, I guess that will always be a mystery. 🙂
