They say there’s a relevant xkcd for everything. They, of course, being the people of the internet, and xkcd being a popular webcomic.
This time, xkcd has set their sights on unnecessarily tall, clumsy infographics. Infographics are a relatively new genre, but they are immediately recognizable through they way they use imagery to drive a (usually data heavy) narrative or message. Examples of the genre can be seen here, here, and here.
But not every message can be squashed into a tall, skinny, graph heavy framework and while infographics are the trend du jour, they can be horribly ineffective when misused.
