It is important to note five principles of effective visuals that I use:

1. Simple - Visuals should be concise and functional
2. Organized and compatible - Visuals should have a logical sequence and focus attention
3. Legible and readable - Visuals shoudl be readable to everyone
4. Appropriate graphics - Select graphic elements that enhance communication
5. Consistent - Information should be presented in a consistent and accurate manner

The infographic is a good example of the use of these five principles.  Do you use these elements in your visuals?  Why not?
