This infographic submission provides ecommerce insights on Black Friday. This is a data heavy infographic, which is a engaging way to present stats and figures. The brief intro does a good job at setting up context and expectations without carrying on too long. The top-to-bottom approach is intuitive and easy to follow along. The charts and graphs work well because none attempt to visualize too much information. Each is easy to comprehend. There are a few copy inconsistencies throughout. For example, the first graph capitalized "By The Hour" whereas the second has "by the" in lowercase. While this is a strong infographic, it could also benefit from some more engaging illustrations and icons. While its usability is high, it's not as welcoming as it could be. Consider a light background as well. Overall, we give this an A.
