1. Story-telling computer graphics
Nothing like a story to develop a practical case within an infographic. Storytelling is the ultimate weapon for computer graphics for all brands concerned with offering content in an innovative form. A visual that also adapts to printed formats to create vertical banners that attract all eyes, while remaining branded with a header and a footer in the colors of your brand.
2. Infographic in figures
Often in the form of a succession of slides integrating images, figures and graphics in a defined register. Curves and pie charts, yes it’s sexy elsewhere than on Powerpoint! You just have to know how to stay innovative and logical in its graphic charter while articulating the computer graphics like a funnel descending towards more and more striking figures as you read.
3. Historical computer graphics
Following a chronological, but also visual, path, the infographic often summarizes the action and the ups and downs of a story in the form of sketches, all following a path that will guide the reader’s eyes towards each step. The key dates and moments are highlighted by visuals which improve the memorization of the content by visual memory. An excellent weapon for this visual memory!
4. The step-by-step infographic
You want to follow steps to reach your goal! This infographic shows images of simple instructions for achieving a goal that at first glance is difficult to achieve … A simple recipe, cut into stages to make the inaccessible accessible and facilitate conversion with simple recipes.
5. Comparative infographic
“Think different” also works by opposing ideas or notions by their differences. All you need to know is that the comparative infographic remains simple and uses the support to visually compare different notions on the same plane and finally locate in a few moments the ins and outs of Cartesian thought. A thought system, which must be remembered, governs the world by thesis / antithesis / synthesis. A conclusion well put forward is often welcome!
6. Map infographic
Imagined by computer trees, these logical plans are very simple to integrate and allow to create a useful mindmap to simplify often too complex concepts which would have much less success in the form of literary development or blog article.
7. Infographic on infographics
Because computer graphics is an area that has become so popular and complex that the design community has wanted to make it popular for itself by publishing dedicated infographics. We could even imagine the infographic on the infographics that explain the infographics, always more!
8. Minimalist computer graphics
Very viral, very simple, very short … Straddling the simple image and the complete computer graphics, this minimalist format allows you to express an idea in 2 or 3 condensed visuals, always humorous and somewhat far-fetched; the power of metaphor works there very well with the outrageous simplicity of minimalism.
9. GIFography and animated computer graphics in HTML5 / CSS3
A great potential in sight, the GIFs boost virality: an animation which brings relief and recreates a universe similar to that of the automata exposed in the windows during the holidays; all in an infographic. Computer graphics legitimately tend to replace PowerPoint presentations using the flexibility of GIF.
A great example here!
