Graphic designers: best book to teach making scientific infrographics?
I need to buy a book on how to make infographics as a birthday present for my significant other. He is a biophysics student and so far has been pretty successful, except he always has trouble explaining his work to others even in his field, because their eyes glaze over. I think with infographics, he could do so much better when he applies for grants or presents to his department.
What is a good book that will teach him/us how practically to make infographics, which tools and models to use, programs to buy, etc.? Every book I look at seems to have a whole speech in it about why using infographics is a good idea, followed by 50 pages of examples. Examples are ok, but I don’t want to pay money for lots of filler about why infographics are good and examples of them being good in irrelevant contexts—I already know all that.
