Men’s Dress Codes Made Simple with illustrations to visualize text information. Simple use of illustrations to help make a dry topic significantly more engaging for readers. Infographics don't always need big, numerical datasets to be able to visualize information.

Building Responsive Data Visualization for the Web by Bill Hinderman​ is a new book that just came out in November. This month I am giving away one signed copy!

I had the pleasure of helping Bill as the Technical Editor on the book last year, and I can say it's a fantastic guide to structuring your data and building your code for interactive data visualizations that work perfectly on every screen size.

The Site Auditor tool from Raven Tools has discovered The 5 Most Common On-Page SEO Issues. Of interest to infographic designers and publishers is that 78% of all issues were image related. That means after all that time spent researching and designing a good infographic, most people fall short when they publish them online.
