Motion infographics are to be found everywhere – on the Internet, in TV commercials and programmes, and in educational films. Their basic goal is to help the viewer digest the information presented to them as painlessly, indeed pleasurably, as possible. But how do their designers set about them? How do they absorb all the material they need to understand before deciding how to demonstrate it? And to what extent does the type of data to be illustrated affect the visual outcome? We have selected more than 30 brilliant infographic motion works, movies and animations, to show you how lively and aesthetically pleasing such instructional efforts can be.


Making information come alive is like weaving a technicolour dreamcoat

We all come across infographics design every day – in the leaflets we pick up from the bank, the competition details on the box of cereal we dip into for breakfast, school textbooks used by our kids, the maps and signage of the buildings and parks and museums that we visit, the road signs we observe as we're driving … The essential function of infographics is to help us make sense of a lot of information or data that would otherwise be difficult to absorb. Clarity and ease of understanding are the basic goals of this design genre – and the same goes for motion-graphics devoted to it.

A 30+ year veteran of painting in the streets and a hardcore gamer since the early 80's, SHOK-1 painted the image inspired by the classic videogame character to create a witty metaphor on our modern consumer culture. The original artwork was spraypainted on a wall in Germany in his unique X-ray style using cutting-edge freehand techniques pioneered by the artist. No stencils or tape were used to achieve the intricate translucent effects.

Lienke Raben – Amsterdam, Netherlands

“The local design scene, as opposed to the advertising scene where I worked before, is less about the big brands and more about the freedom and time to create something awesome. Animators and illustrators that I know really have a passion for what they do and my experience is also that they’re all a little bit weird, in a good way.”
