This infographic provides examples of "poke yoke" that readers may have experienced. The concrete examples, clearly explained, provide helpful context for the reader. The bright color palette and consistent type treatment and illustration style offer an engaging visual space as well. The illustrations connect to the points at hand and often provide moments of humor, which helps the tone of the infographic remain lively. Even though additional visual communication could be helpful here (as in a before-after approach), the concerns are well presented. The copy is clean and error free, and while sentences aren't always best practice, these are concise and to the point. Overall, there's a solid foundation in this infographic, but some additional visuals could help balance the ultimate messaging goals. We'd give this a C.
