Infographics are useful in the AEC industry because they enable marketers to communicate ideas quickly and effectively. Visuals can help highlight key points and important data in a way that is easily identifiable. This approach can be especially useful in technical fields like ours when selection committees are reviewing multiple submissions and you want them to remember your most important data.
