Scenario

Your work as a contract employee for a U.S. based company that develops gaming software. Having been there for years, and going into the office five days a week for usually more than forty hours a week, you were inspired by the various projects you have worked on and in your spare time, using company equipment, you work on your own side project – an app that would give gamers an edge. You know that your company’s business partners would be very enthusiastic about this new product, and you would probably make a great profit; in fact, you might be able to retire! You decide to reach out to these business relationships to see who might have interest.

Infographics provide visual representations of information; they are intended to make the information easier to understand and more quickly digested. They can be developed from scratch if the creator has an artistic flair and the proper software, but are more often created utilizing infographic creation tools/sites.

Some popular infographic tools/sites include:
