“Data visualization” and “infographic” have been buzzwords in the design realm for the last decade.

Readers get all the information they need at first glance from the visualization.
Corporate is usually last to jump on the design train, especially with internal documents. When was the last time your company hired a graphic design firm to spruce up your annual report? Never?

Easy is not automated.
