Although I am normally an advocate of telling how to do things, rather than telling how not to do them, I must recommend this slideshow from The Guardian’s Data Blog: 16 useless infographics.
There are so many designers who have misunderstood the point when it comes to infographics. The integration of text, graphics, diagrams, charts and maps should help us study and understand things that were not obvious to us in the isolated channels of information. It’s certainly not an activity aiming to make things fancy, eye-catching … or plain weird.
