Apple iPhone Statistics 2010 infographic video

The Apple iPhone Statistics 2010 infographic video by Creative Licence Digital (an iPhone app development firm) takes a look at the numbers behind the iPhone phenomenon.

I pose this question to my readers: Is this infographics?  I think it walks a fine line between being artistic and infographic.  While a lot of numbers are shown and communicated to the viewers, they aren’t represented in any graphic form, just text.  What do you think?

Thanks to Darren for sending in the link.

For me, an infographic is one way to tell a story. The video you shared is another way to tell a story. In essence both are tools. The better question for me is choosing the right tool for the job. would this have functioned better as an infographic or would it have had more/less impact if it was in a different form?

This is not infographics, this is motion graphics. No representational graphic elements. No main theme. Just number thrown at the viewer. Well done, but not infographics.

Not infographic--

This is not even a graphic, let alone an infographic. It's just text and nice typography, with some After Effects. Would have worked great on sheet of paper.

This is crap. Too much information too fast. You cannot even process one information until the next one comes up. The designer of this could have left the text out and just put random letters and bars, no difference.

It's not crap like the last bloke said, but it's not infographics that's for sure. Just too text based to be anything special.
