It’s been a while since the whole ‘good/bad infographics’ discussion started. The use of this powerful communication tool for SEO has practically created a new market for design agencies and freelancers, with many companies ‘trying out’ an infographic as a way of bringing visitors to their sites. And, like in every other market, there’s the good, the average, and the bad.
Critics of this model have outlined their disagreement in articles, social networks and, of course, trough infographics. On the other hand, we’ve seen some agencies defending their work, and the benefits of the use of infographics as part of the digital marketing strategy, in a graphic way as well.
Straight from our archives, and celebrating the launch of the new Visual Loop, we present you with some of infographics about infographics, covering both sides of the discussion. Some are ironic, funny or sarcastic, while others try to educate on the proper ways of using this form of communication.
