Information Graphics (7): Introduction to Ramadan
Visual communication in general and infographics in particular,  are each day more common in our vocabulary. Why?. Because infographics are useful for understanding and communicating. Trough understanding something, we can visualize it and therefore produce a graphic. That said,if you can't visualize something, you can't understand it; and probably you need an infographic!. In trying to understand something, you can make a mental image of it, visualize it, and therefore, create a graphic. And then, show and communicate it, making it understandable to others.
Both steps have tricky parts. The first one is all about understanding rightly, and the second one, to cut off ambiguities, to show it to others. Seeing is believing says the adage. But you must see clearly. It is said that the image is related to long term memory and text to short term memory. I relate this to the fact that the image conveys more information rapidly. The text is a large chain of meanings being decoded linearly, building up meaning through sedimentation., from letters to words, from sentences to paragraphs, and so on.
