The topic that we covered in class about creating graphics really helped me to understand why graphics are so important to have in any technical document. After creating my own infographic, I realized how important it is to know your audience. Learning about how to create graphics has not quite changed the way in which I approach my work. However, I have gotten a deeper understanding of how to choose the appropriate kind of graphic and how to use it effectively. I will used what I learned from this topic to help me with presentations that I may have to give in the future. Also, I will use the many different guidelines from Practical Strategies of how to create an effective graphic for an audience.
