3 Infographic Trends to Master in 2015
Infographics have been around for years now, but show no signs of slowing down just yet. They are however, becoming more sophisticated with their content and execution. So, here are 3 trends we predict will be big in 2015.
The non-sales ‘sales’ infographic trend
Those of you who regularly produce infographics know that they shouldn’t be sales pieces, which are only used to promote your products. Instead, they should be useful, practical and engaging for your audience. However, Starbucks has gone and proved us all wrong, demonstrating that infographics can be sales-led and used for promotional gain. Even so, they still have to be informative and more importantly, interesting.

Interactive Infographic trends
What’s more, interactive infographics can help you stand out from the crowd and attract digital PR coverage. Just ensure your concept is as strong as your execution if you’re seeking placements, links and shares.

Video Infographic trend
Seeing as over 6 billion hours of video are watched every month on YouTube, it makes sense for brands to invest in this kind of content. Audiences are craving information from video content right now, so why not merge their love for video with their love for infographics. Not only does watching a video make customers more confident about buying a product, it also dramatically increases the chance of them sharing the content with others.
Sounds like the perfect match, doesn’t it?! And it can be, video infographics needn’t be complex or expensive, they’re simply animated videos featuring data visualisations with the pace to engage and educate your audience.
