What It Shows
This infographic is an animated fact sheet all about the cheetah, with a specific focus on its speed (obviously).
Why It’s Good
Normally I’m not super into fact sheet infographics, but I was taken by the art style. I love when infographics effectively use colour to establish an additional layer of categorization, but it’s just not necessary for an infographic like this; the monochrome works just fine.
This is the first animated gif infographic I’ve reviewed, and I think this really was a case where animation makes sense. How else can you truly show the cheetah’s stride?
What It’s Missing
The facts about cheetah speed were great, but I can’t help feeling like, once you’re going animated, you should show the cheetah moving forward, maybe showing relative speed/acceleration by showing a looping “race” between the cheetah and useful comparisons.
