This infographic was submitted to us by SinglePoint.

There’s plenty of data viz here, which is great to see. The color palette and aesthetic stay consistent throughout, and the organization is easy to follow. A solid black background is a little aggressive, so I might suggest toning it to a dark grey or patterned background. All-white backgrounds are typically discouraged because they may just run into the background of many websites — it’s also a possibility for black backgrounds, too.

The only exception I see to the organization thing is the number of wireless devices to US residents placed in the Blending Work and Play section. It doesn’t seem quite at home there. Maybe it would work best in an intro section about device use, showing how many people also have tablets, laptops, etc.

I’d love to see some illustrations introduced beyond the basic iconography — though I do like the styles of some of the charts shown, as an alternative to the basic bar graphs and pie charts.

In all I’d give this infographic a B. It’s got a good amount of data and data viz, but there’s nothing particularly outstanding about the design: a bit of a facelift would help it stand out.
