  35. 35. #SEJThinktank @stephmansueto Aim to be informative: Regardless of style type, infographics need to educate their readers on a topic or practice. Show, Don’t Tell: Infographics are visual content pieces that include graphics that aim to draw users eyes to key points. Keep text to a minimum. Logical Hierarchy: Structure is important. Be strategic in what the user sees first and how you close the story. Don’t be Afraid to Pivot: Be honest with yourself. If you aren’t inspired, it’s ok to change course.
