Infographics bring retail data to lifeMarch 1, 2013How do you present hard retail data in an interesting and visually arresting way? With infographics, of course! In recently developing a website for the owner and manager of multiple Sydney community shopping centres and retail strips, the amount of data rapidly approached overwhelming. To present this data entirely in figures would lack impact. The design and development teams collaborated on the concept and creation of infographics to convey a wealth of information rapidly, consistently and powerfully. Large numbers were represented by iconography which segmented and rendered the data immediately clear. Across 8 community retail locations, data on; catchment area demographics;, suburb populations; average weekly income; annual shopper traffic; centre size; number of retailers and number of car parks; was presented consistently. Banna Property Group manages over 50,000m2 of retail space across metropolitan Sydney, from retail strips to large, community-based shopping centres. Banna focuses on property management, retail and commercial leasing and property development projects. Visit the site to view the infographics. Search our recent infographic blogs.

Corporations and Countries: The BiggestJanuary 27, 2013We are not yet in the world of "Jonathan E", where the world and the Rollerball teams are run by global sector monopolies (Transport, Food, Communications, Housing, Luxury, and Energy). However, today, the revenues of the world's biggest corporations (and the major banks who hold their stock) are larger than many national economies. Seven of the top 10 are oil and gas companies. Royal Dutch Shell has revenues higher than all but 25 of the world's largest national economies. Exxon Mobil, SinoPec and BP are individually larger than all but the top 29 nations. Five of the top 25 corporations are automotive groups: Toyota, Volkswagen, GM, Daimler and Ford. The annual revenue of Warren Buffet's investment firm Berkshire Hathaway, is greater than the GDP of most of the world's nations. Could these companies be managed more efficiently than some countries? An infographic from visual.ly (using data from TNI) presents this comparison in a powerful visual form.
Charting Communications EvolutionOctober 1, 2012The increasingly rapid rate of technological innovation is displayed graphically in an infographic entitled the Changing Consumer. In the century following the first public demonstration of the telegraph in 1844, the single major telecommunications development was the telephone. In the last 30 years of the 20th century, fax, cellphones and text messages emerged and grew rapidly. In the last decade, Geosocial platforms have launched, and together with the dramatic rise of smartphones, are becoming the prime means of social communication. The number of people using social media has grown from fewer than 4 million in 2005 to over 1.5 billion in 2012. Earlier this century, the founder of Digital Tsunami coined a phrase for this rapid technological and sociological change: 'Communications Evolution'. Source: Drumbi

Social Networks for BusinessAugust 21, 2012Why are so many infographics based on social networks and business? Simply because social networks are so critical to marketing and the numbers just keep increasing. Plus, they make for great visuals! This infographic from the folks at SDL | SM2 concisely presents and evaluates the top nine social media networks for business. Companies are increasingly utilising YouTube as a highly cost effective global broadcast platform with an inbuilt search engine and social distribution network. LinkedIn offers access to over 160 million professionals around the globe (and their companies). Brands, from a range as diverse as major film studios and philanthropic organisations, are creating and maintaining Facebook pages for their products and services, to access a global market of almost one billion consumers. Pinterest, Twitter, FourSquare and others may seem, (and may be), peripheral to your marketing strategy, but an informed understanding of social media and an effective custom strategy is critical for every business.
