They say ‘a picture speaks a thousand words.’
Pictures have never been more important to help convey thoughts, ideas and notions. The more complex the information, the more useful a picture becomes.
A very brief glance at history will show that information and ideas have been communicated using a whole range of mediums – paintings, poems, photography, film, etc… Having the internet means we now have access to even more dizzying amounts of informations, anybody sitting on a bus or waiting in a supermarket queue will see people glued to their smart phones, we have never been more logged in!
How do you get your point across when there is such a jam going on?
With problems come solutions and the info-graphic of today is one of the more elegant solutions to this daily data back-log. Infographics allow people to get their points across, they tell a story and communicate relevant points of information – from hard data to softer more anecdotal information.
Creating infographics is one of our most popular services at the moment – from the idea of a fully ‘digitally enabled Scotland’ for Seric Systems to the ‘animal kingdom’ of the Princes Trust Growth Fund.
Infographics help great organisations make great points. Peter Dickson, Investment Analyst at ‘Clyde Blowers Capital’ states that “We have to absorb huge amounts of information when making, and communicating, complex investment decisions. Infographics and storyboards are a great way to quickly and simply disseminate information.”
The word ‘Communication’ is from Latin and means ‘to share.’ It is ‘the meaningful exchange of information between two or more living creatures.’ For people and companies wishing to make a point; it requires poise, it requires flair but above all it requires a willingness on the part of the communicator to make it easy for the recipient.
With the internet, social media and smart phones; infographics are a fantastic way to get your message across…
