Infographics define how a picture is worth a thousand words. If you want to show to your readers what a specific topic is all about, should you bore them with words? Or should you empower their mind with digestible information through fun colors and images representing your explanation. It transforms complex information into graphics that are easy to grasp and is visually appealing.
