One thought on “Infographic

  1. I really enjoy the creativity of this infographic. I think taking the stripes of the zebra and representing them as statistic was very original. It is clean cut and simple, yet very detailed at the same time. The artist designed this piece to make it look like the cover of a magazine, which was definitely successful. If it maybe had a bar code at the bottom and a different background it would look even more like a cover, but overall I really enjoyed this piece.
