Recently it has become a norm for people to use infographics to communicate statistics, research findings, and trends. Designing an infographic can be a difficult and research-intensive task. From all the research that is involved to making sure the design conveys the right message, some say it’s art, others would say it’s a science. (Designdisease)
In the digital age, the saying has never been more relevant; A picture is worth a thousand words. To cope with the daily onslaught of information we’ve become content grazers, skimming headlines and post descriptions for the promise of bite-sized nuggets of information. (Intersection Consulting)
Infographics are easy to digest, easy to share, and create great brand awareness. However not all infographics tell the whole story, or in some cases tell any story. Building an infographic requires some research by itself to avoid the unwanted of just being a cumulation of graphs, fancy art work and color use. (Speckyboy)

Are more generous than we think.
Would be more likely to serve or give if asked.

‘Fastcodesign’ describe millennials as well-educated, tech-savvy, and independent. However they’re also cursed by a bad economy.
‘Millennial Teenager’ explains that when it comes to communication, millennials prefer text messaging above emails, while ‘Youth Ministry Media’ reveals that millennial’s are super networkers, and because they are connected they don’t need a land-line; they text while driving and do not feel guilty about it.
