They are widely used across various fields in many organizations, whether to communicate a message or showing the vital statistics related to the company. An infographic is a representation of information in a graphic format designed to make the data easily understandable at a glance. The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, information architecture.

The main question here which arises in our minds is why the human brain craves for infographics. Why a pictorial representation of a particular thing is more alluring than the theory behind it.

The human mind has a tendency of remembering things which it see or visualize for a long time rather than just hearing about it. Also the graphical illustrations of certain things make a space in our mind more quickly compared to non graphical theory. Consuming data using a visual representation is much faster than reading. It only takes 1/10th of a second to understand a visual scene. Gaining knowledge seems to be fast and easy when using infographics.
