Evolving Process/Criteria for Evaluating Infographics

  1. What's the story the infographic is trying to tell? What's the question or point(s) of it?
  2. Is the infographic effective? What makes it so, or not?
  3. What's the veracity of the data? Give it the brown M&M test using your search engine foo, GIYF, Wolfram Alpha, etc.
  4. Is the infographic representative of the data? Cherrypicking? Parallax?
  5. How could it be improved?
  6. Requirements (of a sort):
    • Color
    • Typography
    • Surface utilization

Consider embedding a summary of the points we are collecting.
