    I find this article rather informative. I believe this skill is great to have. It could be used in various environments such as school and the work place. If you look at it from a marketing perspective infographics are attractive to the eye and can be quickly read.

    Never ever did I know that creating infographics could be this easy. As mentioned in the video, always thought that this is the work that graphic designers could do easily but PowerPoint has so much on offer. We could do some great stuff with it. This is one great skill to have at your workplace as it could make data and information look much more appealing rather than presenting it in a conventional form.

    I’ve been graphic designing for five years now and I’ve been seeing a lot of websites/apps/programs that make what I do obsolete. It’s definitely significantly easier than hiring a designer and going through the motions with that, but there is value in custom creation that these types of services will never be able to attain.

    Possessing computer skills is very important in the workforce currently and is only going to grow in the future. Projecting information in a memorable and attractive way through infographics is more effective than using traditional methods.

    The power of the infographic is overwhelming. It allows people to easily compare things, and they will often receive attention when people would just skip over a block of text. Since people like to compare things visually, this makes it very easy to get your point across.
