Infographic Scorecard

Infographic Design: B-

While the design in this infographic isn’t going to take the housing world by storm, you have to give credit for creating a consistent look and feel for the piece. It feels very much like a census report with sensible and safe graphics applied, which is totally fine. I would rather see an understated design with thought than an over-the-top look that was a mess of clip art and color.

Infographic Information: C+

This information included isn’t riveting but it does provide insight to a small window into how a few other countries live, concerning the size of the home and the size of the family living in the home. Not much depth to this, very superficial, which is too bad because it does make you wonder about a few other housing statistics such as what number of homes are forfeited and how many working people live in each home. I will admit the numbers on the home size of a UK home were startling. Who knew any country was more miniaturized than Japan.
