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.
