In an admittedly geeky way, I really like good infographics. I actually read those leaflets on planes and trains!
A project in New York has produced a series of quite extensive infographics which seek to explain various complicated things using minimum text.
The example I looked at covers information for street vendors [PDF] in the city – the different kinds, licensing, the law, history, etc. A significant part of the target audience is foreign, so conveying information effectively using imagery was very important for the project.
It crossed my mind that this might be good here, to explain different aspects of the University. Staff and students get LOTS of [textual] information when they arrive, and for non-native English speakers, parts of it must be a challenge. Could some of that information communicated using infographics? It makes me wonder…
