This infographic demonstrates some advantages and disadvantages of home locks. The illustrations of the different lock types are clean and professional, and create a unified image for the brand. It's easy to understand the function of each lock, and the text does not overshadow the visual comprehension. However, there is no tangible key for understanding the rating system. Without a reference point for each rating, a reader is not entirely sure what a 3/5 means for security and usability, over a 5/5. Because the infographic lacks a key for understanding the rating system, we'd give this a B.
