Science illustrations inspire, educate, and inform. Information graphics play an important role in today’s fast-paced world of technological and environmental change . Illustrations are like a universal language—facilitating communication among scientists, policy-makers, students, and the public. Like the old addage "a picture is worth a thousand words," a single diagram has the potential to convey complex topics at a single glance. Illustrations go beyond photography, exploring hidden concepts, taking things apart, and generally satisfying our innate curiosity for the world unseen.
(provide statistics/proof of each) Graphics attract attention. Break up large sections of text. Improve understanding of complex concepts. Clear and concise communication is needed now more than ever. Sometimes vast amounts of data mean nothing until they are transformed into a graph or a map shaded in gradients of colors. Our brain is wired to interpret visual data much quicker than we could understand tables of numbers or paragraphs of text. Reach your audience—make your content accessible to those with different educational and cultural backgrounds, different life experiences. Increase memorability Improve the quality of your publication, add credibility and trustworthiness
Not all graphics are created equal.
