Do you know which questions you need to ask your remote dba? If not check out 4 important questions and below info graphic that can help you. These are must when you select dba services.

The information in this design provides a helpful explanation of remote vs. in-house DBAs and what to ask before you bring someone on. The “Few things you should ask your remote DBA” section is especially helpful, as one could quickly browse “Experience level” “Support processes” “Senior or Junior DBAs” and “Employee turnover” and not need to read the details below to get value from it.

However, it’s tough to visually understand that this is about DBA services, and there are a lot of distracting design elements that are fighting for attention here. It’s good to see a consistent orange color, but the rest of the palette and illustration styles are not standardized. The style of the characters with headsets is completely different from the icon styles, which are all pretty different from one another. A strong infographic should pick one style (or one main illustration style and one complementary icon style) and stick to it. A few other design notes, like margins, are worth another look.

In all I’d give this design an F, though, because you need the text to know what’s going on, and the visuals are more of an afterthought than the main drive of the story.

Final Grade

The information provided is helpful, but it would benefit from being communicated more visually instead of relying on text. When it comes to design, there are some basic mistakes and disparate styles that make it hard to get through. The layout of the bottom section is pretty effective, though!
