Infographics – Leverage the Power of Visual Story Telling

Posted by : admin in Content Marketing ()Comments

Brand story telling has become an abundant activity to go about marketing a company. From the conventional marketing techniques of just telling the features, there has been a significant shift to creating a story to attract more consumers. And incidentally, it has been a very successful technique as society responds more to story telling. Companies launch videos, images, humorous memes and infographics to promote their brands. These brand promotion utilities provide a story to appeal to the consumers’ instinct.

Nike’s digital storytelling is innovative, fun, and consistent. One of the best examples is this quirky little video story .The story appeals to the sentimental side of viewers and encourages them to do something adventurous, something that they could not do, just wearing Nike shoes.

The idea of representing a set of data, information or knowledge through an image which is easy to grasp led to the creation of the phenomenal infographics. Infographic is a combination of two words- Information and Graphics.  These infographics explain complex information, patterns and trends clearly and quickly. From the maps and graphs, to the road signs, from the site plans to the newspaper reports, infographics are used everywhere.
