This infographic identifies some of the nutrients and benefits of pumpkin seeds. The piece relies on icons to communicate some of the information, which is a great choice for a piece with a number of brief points. The icons do vary in style, which might distract the reader, and while they do approach the subject, at times there might be opportunities for clarity. The content stays on subject, and the data is forefront in each moment. Along with the list of sources, the piece provides some great information about its topic. However, there are some moments of repetition in the copy, which could be eliminated to keep the reader moving through the piece. And, some of the information could be a bit more concise without losing any of its meaning. Overall, this infographic has a solid foundation—it just needs a bit more clarity to achieve its maximum impact. We'd give this a D.
