I’ve always been fascinated with infographics—even if I have trouble remembering the actual term. Using visual cues, they consciously focus on the most essential words of an idea, which sends them directly our brains—bypassing the kicking and screaming caused by punctuation and those “little” connector words and phrases. Usually our eyes skip right over those words anyway, even though we editors cringe when they actually go missing from a paragraph.
Here then is my first attempt at an infographic, designed to convey a few large and several rather small ideas. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think.
