Over the last decade infographics have become a core part of the news, policy and research communications armoury. Now it seems as if every article or report must have an infographic summary to be reproduced online and in presentations and re-tweeted ad nauseam. Interactive data tools have become more and more prevalent. But are we becoming jaded with a graphic style dominated by stick figures and icons? Are we guilty of oversimplifying complex ideas and underestimating our audiences? Are infographics nearing the end of their useful life or have we just seen too many bad ones? Do interactive data tools really draw big audiences and justify the money spent on them? Can we recapture a sense of excitement, originality and, above all, usefulness in our data visualisations?
