Future is moving towards the illustrations. It does not require any language or grammar to pass the required information. India is a diverse country, it has thousands of languages spoken throughout the country at the same time. It is not possible to convey any information in such a vast variety of language. Drawing, pictures, graphs, illustrations does not require words to express themselves. They are a language in itself, easily understood by everyone. Also the information conveyed by them is actually much faster than the paragraphs or written documents.
What are Info graphics?
Infographic is a visual presentation of knowledge or data designed to present all information in a clear and attractive way. Graphics help the reader to understand some complicated processes or simply show some piece of information in an interesting form, aimed at attracting the user’s attention.

They can be made effective by using creative designs, pictures, and graphics. Catchy titles always takes the interest out of the reader and many times information presented in forms of graphs, charts and statistics proved worth effective in keeping the interest. Many times due to lack of information some advertisers use too much of text and dull or white background, reducing the attractiveness of the graphics. They do not even share it properly or their marketing techniques or planning is not very suitable.
