People retain information through images faster than they do through blocks of text. Infographics are the ultimate tool for spreading information with a combination of interesting visuals and few lines of text. For one of my PR classes, we were instructed to design an infographic about something of interest. As you can see , I chose studying abroad for my theme. The goal I had in mind while designing it was to attract prospective study abroad students. Unfortunately, finding study abroad statistics was a bit harder than I thought. I included information about abroad returnees finding jobs within 12 months of graduating which I thought was an excellent incentive, showing future benefits. I also included the top most traveled continents. I have heard many students complaining that there are no programs for their specific majors so I included statistics of majors that have gone abroad. Lastly, I included the statistic of 80 percent traveling outside of their host region so that people are encouraged to travel and not stay within their country’s limits!
