The bad infographic guide is a cautionary piece that's sure to keep companies out of hot water.

Though infographics can provide a succinct and viral way of getting a brand's message across, sending out a lackluster piece can actually damage a company instead of leveraging its image. This chart details where many go wrong, and how it can be avoided. From bad spelling and grammar to advice that comes off as disingenuous, all sorts of mistakes are discussed in this piece. The resolution to avoiding many of these slip-ups is to hire a design professional, and double check all work before sending it out.

The guide itself, which is in infographic form, is exceptionally well-designed and avoids the mistakes it speaks to.
