Infographic is an easy and quick visual representation of data. Its purpose is to convey useful information in a compact way while grabbing the attention of viewers. It simplifies complicated information and focuses on the main points.
Human beings have a short attention span and store 90% of the information they receive visually. Having something easy to scan through helps most people grasp as much information as possible without having to spend hours reading. Besides, not everyone finds reading enjoyable. Even those who love reading appreciate infographics because they sometimes help them decide if a particular subject is worth reading on further.
