This infographic was submitted to us by HCL Nursing.

This has some great stats about the love holiday! From how many Brits celebrate Valentine’s Day to historical context for the holiday and other love traditions, it spans a good range of information. It was interesting to learn that a factory that makes candy hearts has such a high level of coworker relationships!

It’d be great to see a little less dependence on text, using visuals to showcase the information more. I think the 59% of Brits celebrating is data visualization as it looks like roughly 59% of the UK is shaded in — but that’s the only instance of it throughout. The 10 beds to 400 beds visual could have used quantagrams to convey the increase, and same for the Lovehearts stat. Use visuals instead of text wherever possible to keep your infographic easy to digest!

In all I’d give this infographic a B-. It stays short overall but there’s a fair amount of text in the second half of the IG, and it would be nice to see a few more visuals that assist the text content.
