Infographics are an increasingly popular way to communicate in this social-media age. Smart and creative infographics can catch the eye and convey an incredible amount of information, and they can be easily shared. But they can also be poorly done and end up confusing more than communicating. What makes a good infographic? What does the creative and editorial process look like? Where is the infographics trend headed, and how can editors stay abreast of best practices? Join us as Nick Routley of Visual Capitalist addresses these and other questions.

Nick Routley is creative director at Visual Capitalist, a Vancouver-based company that combines art, data, and storytelling to make complex issues and processes more digestible, and whose client list features major brands around the world. He is also the co-founder of Popcorn, a social media marketing and PR agency. A graduate of Emily Carr University and BCIT, Nick has been nominated for multiple Information Is Beautiful awards for excellence in data visualization.
