This infographic provides statistics about the prevalence, common causes and effects of back pain. The design of this infographic features a consistent color palette that uses purple and peach accents to highlight important data. The design's graphic use of light/dark contrast is effective in the first section, but the bottom half of the design becomes more cluttered, with photo tiles crowded against small light and dark panels. The lead visuals don't communicate that back pain is the subject of the infographic, although less prominent visuals in the "Common Causes" section are slightly more effective. This infographic's text is brief, error-free, and stays focused the main topic. The text content is well-balanced with varied visual elements, including a quantagram, donut chart, bar graph, and icons. Overall, concise text is enhanced with an array of data visualizations, although more negative space in the lower half of the design could be added to decrease visual clutter. We'd give this a C.
