Rise in Infographics Blogs, Websites And Resources

I do a lot of search on infographics blogs and websites for examples and references where artists use graphics to present information.

There has been an increasing number of websites devoted to the topic of infographics over the years, although I can't put a number to it. I've bookmarked all of the ones listed below on Delicious tagged infographics and even more that were not listed.

Here's a list that I frequent, via RSS. Also check out their blog roll, or favourite links, as they point to even more resources.

This is where page designers, graphic artists, and infographics journalists submit their work to. It's like the Flickr or Youtube for newspaper page design. The variety ranges from simple graphic charts to award winning infographics.

Cool Infographics Blog
This blog was created in July 2007. Currently, it has over 200 postings. The blog features interesting infographics that appear in print and on the web.
I'll quote from their About page. " intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project's main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web."

In short, they try to bring across information with cool, and sometimes abstract, graphics.
