Infographic: How Flowers Impact Emotions

I just wanted to share this pretty infographic I saw recently that shows how different flowers are related to our emotions. I knew that red flowers symbolized love but I didn’t realize that red was associated with a greater attention to detail.

Friday Fun Infographic: Business Cards are Still in Business

I’m sharing this infographic, found on Visual.ly, for several reasons:
  • The topic interests me. I have business cards but I never know quite how to use them and have often wondered about their relevance in today’s society.
  • It includes several interesting things. History, tips and etiquette when it comes to business cards; I found it fascinating!
  • I love the color scheme. It’s basically black and white with the right color blue/green just looks really great I think.
  • I adore the inclusion of the “runway trends”. Not necessarily relevant to anything but just a fun addition to the infographic.

I think it’s a super interesting topic and I like the way that the flowchart is laid out … seems like a design that would make perfect sense as a checklist for the visual mind of an artist!
