The 15 Best Infographics of 2014

Written by | @


Every year people proclaim the death of something or other in marketing -- and the death of the infographic doesn't escape conversation. It's probably because while more people have caught on to the power of infographics for communications or marketing initiatives, not all of them are doing it well -- so it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

These 15, however, managed to stand out. My criteria here were not scientific. I looked for infographics that I simply could not stop reading til the very end -- or in the case of the interactive ones in the latter half of this post, the ones I couldn't stop exploring. 

Enjoy perusing the best of what 2014's infographics had to offer, ranked in no particular order (except for #1 -- I love #1).
