Infographics

Infographics are visual representations of information in the form of a chart, schematics or other image accompanied by minimal text and arrows, intended to give a quickly and clearly understood the main thrust or concept.

Most of infographics that I produced here were used in research papers, graphical abstracts or presentation slides.

Compared to the traditional science illustration, infographics are usually preferred to be simpler in style.
