Infographic Review

Infographic Design: A

Certainly no small amount of time went into this infographic design. The stereo motif works well with the subject matter is music piracy and the loss of money it creates for the music companies and musicians involved. Quite clever to use the glowing decibel levels as graphing options as well as bigger knobs to show larger percentages. The digital type at the bottom was  a nice touch as well that didn’t go unnoticed. Even the inclusion of movies wasn’t awkward but the silhouette shadows of movie goers didn’t work quite as well within the design of the infographic. But still a great effort and lovely infographic.

Infographic Information: A

I certainly don’t know if the stats and figures are correct for movie and music piracy but they certainly seem on the level. Does anyone know anyone who hasn’t stolen music or a movie? I bet it would be hard to find anyone under the age of 50 who doesn’t “own” some music that fell off a truck, so to speak. The infographic does a good job showing many statistics to support their point, which is piracy steals from the artists, but also from the audience – lost revenue hurts all of us.
