7 Times Technology Almost Destroyed The World

7 Times Technology Almost Destroyed The World infographic

7 Times Technology Almost Destroyed The World is a scary infographic from Hudman.

The importance of thoroughly testing new technology is highlighted in this infographic. We take a light-hearted, yet terrifying look at how close the human race has come to destroying all life on planet earth.

Fun, engaging information! From a design perspective, there's way too much text in this infographic, and the font size is too small to easily read. So much text, it will probably turn away many readers before they read any of the information.

Simplify, simplify, simplify! Shorter descriptions and larger icons or illustrations will draw in readers to engage with the infographic.

Your article is very helpful. I am a big fan of this sector. Personally, I am also a traveler. Most of the time I spend many historical places. So that I want to start a business at this sector.
