We at Usersnap are big fans of visual communication. That’s why we love infographics and thought we would share our favorite infographics with you.
We’ll also explain why images are stored in long-term memory. Let’s get started!
Infographics are a powerful medium
Infographics give you a quick introduction to a new topic or aspect of a topic. Statistics and facts are represented visuall, which makes them easier and quicker to understand.
Dr. Lynn Burmack, an Education Consultant, found out in her research that visual content gets stored in long-term memory, while written words leave your short-term memory very quickly.
While you might not remember my introductory words by tomorrow, you might spend a thought or two on these following infographics. I tried my best to keep each introduction very short so you can spend more time with the visuals. Enjoy reading!
