This 'What's an Infographic' chart answers the very question it poses in the most straightforward way possible.
Featuring three photos with only three words, this sums up the question with photos. Realistically the chart does answer the question, and little else needs to be said about the creation and point of infographics. The materials used in the photos are tiny lego pieces, which become gradually more well-organized as the chart goes on. Because of the use of toys, the piece is extremely colorful, and completely lovely to look at. Although this explanation is fairly simple, it still does a great job of conveying exactly what an infographic is all about. No extra frills are needed here, just the facts.
