Everyone loves infographics, sure, but static infographics are a bit old hat now. With so many infographics out there, it’s easy to overlook a lot of infographics with good content just because they just don’t stand out from the rest of the pack. And, if you’re a designer, you’ve probably racked your brains trying to figure out how to attract viewers and create infographics that do stand out from the rest.
Well, one of the ways you can do that is with animated infographics.
Animated and interactive infographics, especially those designed using HTML5, are quite possibly the future of infographics. Animated infographics engage with viewers better and can help add interest to topics that might otherwise come across as mundane.
