This infographic provides an overview of the substantial nature of cybercrime in London. The piece is full of data, which is helpful to reinforce the message and build in support for its argument. However, some of the visual communication isn't quite clear, which could create misleading interpretations in readers. The design style is bright, and the typography indicates subsections and emphasis well. The color palettes mostly consistent, but shifts away from the primary color choices make some areas feels out of place — this is reinforced by subtle changes in the design style. The content is focused on data, which is a strong approach for this topic. Some moments could be trimmed, but the text doesn't overwhelm the visuals. The sections are well organized and keep the information in useful categories. Overall, this infographic has a solid foundation. It just needs a bit more consistency to achieve its full impact. We'd give this a D.
