The Power of Visual Communication [Infographic]

Written by | @

visual-communication-infographicI have a severe weakness: listening. 

(I know! It's bad.)

Whether in my middle school science class, a lecture, or a presentation at work, I find I hear the words, but it's the retention of those words that gives me trouble.

Turns out I'm not alone. A new infographic from Wyzowl shows that only 10% of people remember what they hear. Reading doesn't help the cause much, with only 20% of people remembering what they read.

But 80% of people remember what they see and do. And it's more than just that. They also learned that visuals are processed 60,000X faster than text [Click to Tweet], and that 93% of communication is nonverbal [Click to Tweet].

To learn more about the power of visual communication and how it became such an integral part of our industry, check out the infographic below.
