It seems like the cool thing these days is to shit on infographics, despite how useful they are to really convey information easily to a broad audience. I don’t see what the problem is, especially when they’re done as well as these by Peter Orntoft. He calls them Infographics In Context and they’re exactly that. The top image for example, shows gang related crime and whether the Danes have changed behaviour because of it. So he literally wrapped people in caution tape to get the point across. In the second image he visualizes whether or not the Danes thinks its ethical to wear religious symbols in public professions. Context is important when it comes to graphics like these and I love that these get the point across at a glance. Not to mention how well done these are, the photography looks great and the punch of colors help illustrate the point even more clearly. We need more infographics like these everywhere.
