Many of the infographics you probably have seen have taken on layouts with numbered lists of factoids weaved in and around some numbers and graphs, or timelines where information is spread out under multiple date and year labeled headings. Also, the colorful pictures you see pertaining to the infographic are those that others have created with computers and mathematical equations, and are important factors when adding that extra spice to the custom illustration.
For this type of infographic a little extra expertise and elbow grease goes into the creation process. Ladies and gentlemen, we welcome, the custom tailored infographic. This layout is superb when you want to create something visually specific.

So without further ado, we bring you the “illustration infographic”.
