Final Grade

This infographic offers some facts and figures about Super Bowl ad spending. First, some positives: the content is short and to the point, which is ideal for this kind of infographic. The layout is clean and consistent, too, which makes the information easier to navigate. However, it could use some work when it comes to design and visual communication. The icons used throughout don't really do much to help convey the material, and the numbers aren't visualized at all. And the mix of design styles and photography ultimately create a messy aesthetic. As is, we'd give this infographic an F.
