The central figure of the millennial is bold and immediately attracts the reader’s attention. Contrasting a light figure against a dark background makes it even bolder and more eye-catching.
A secondary theme of “x-ray” also makes this piece pop. The x-ray imagery starts in the header and continues through the rest of the graphic.
Small, custom details make this infographic stand apart from other generic graphics. We love the man-bun, cuffed skinny-jeans, sunglasses, and client-related rock-n-roll tee.
Dealing with Lots of Copy
While “less is more” is always the rule when it comes to infographic copy, a central-image infographic is a handy way to deal with lots of copy in an infographic, for two reasons:
- First, you don’t have to use graphs. Some of our central-image infographics do feature little graphs around the edges, but it’s not necessary;
- Second, arraying the text around the outside of the image makes it feel less overwhelming and text-heavy – even when you have lots of copy.
