We are a visual society–90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual and our brains will process images 60,000 times faster than text.

Graphics are aesthetically pleasing, but may also be hard to create if you do not have a foundation in design.

Some of the tips offered in the infographic below include: when adding on, less is more; don’t use too many design elements that will make your graphics look cluttered and unreadable; or that you should use quality imagery and buy what you can’t create.
