Meet google, the noun that became a Verb.
As defined by wikipedia, infographics are visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics are used where complex information needs to be explained quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. They are also used extensively as tools by computer scientists,mathematicians, and statisticians to ease the process of developing and communicating conceptual information. Nowadays however Infographs can an are being used to represent almost everything. When properly executed infographs should be both beautiful and meaningful, allowing the viewer to decipher data and recognize trends while admiring its aesthetic appeal.
I cant help but notice the increased amount of “google” info graphics that keep popping up. Google has perhaps more than any other company become “The Internet Company.” It’s grown hand in hand with the internet and its entire business model has from the start been totally focused on the internet as a delivery platform. And let’s face it, Google is a pretty interesting company. In fact, it’s so interesting that hundreds of people have put together really interesting infographics with a ton of facts and figures about Google. Just like these examples, so we can find out just how big google really is! Patrick Clair took google infographics one step further and created a google profile motion graphic which you can check out on his website.
