This infographic shares information about vaping, its potential health effects, data about the monetary cost and popularity of vaping, and data about vaping-related lung injuries in 2019. This infographic contains a fairly balanced ratio of text and visual elements, and maintains a consistent style and color palette. The text is generally straightforward, relevant and easy to read. The layout and design of data visualizations tend to be confusing throughout this infographic. Bubble chart-style comparisons, which are not the easiest to read, are used repeatedly. In this infographic, bar charts don't always add up to 100%, which makes them hard to read. Information about patients affected by vaping-related injuries is also difficult to understand, since it's unclear how percentages relate to other percentages. Overall, this infographic's design style and data points are informative and relevant to the main subject, but inadequately designed data visualizations undermine the information. We'd give this a D.
