Infographics & Data (Haven)

What’s an infographic? We’ve often been asked that question. The term has been around for many years but is now becoming popular. Infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly (thanks Wikipedia!). Also known as data graphics, information graphics and data visualization, infographics can include charts, graphcs, timelines, process/flow charts, diagrams, maps, and tables.

In recent years, infographic design has become a specialty of WFGD. We enjoy the challenge of taking complex information and presenting it in clear and compelling designs. There’s never just one solution, and often it’s a time consuming process of design, re-design and editing to ensure the information is represented clearly. The end product is a visually appealing design with digestible data.

Below are some detail shots from a new report we designed for DataHaven, a non-profit organization based in New Haven, Connecticut whose mission is to improve quality of life by collecting, sharing, and interpreting public data. This report (completed for the The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven) is entitled Understanding the Impact of Immigration in Greater New Haven  includes data on demographics, community and economy.
