comment Infographics smoothing and shadows : background or ressources ?
Thanks for your answer, i chalk it up on the "trend" side :). I didn't present myself, but i think it's now useful. I'm a teacher in graphic design, especially oriented toward scientific illustration and maps in particular. I know the works of E. Tufte, and i like the summary done by J. Krygier about maps (on his blog, makingmaps.net). I was wondering if practitioners of graphic design have sensed this as a stylistic trend or as new technical possibilities to achieve more "beautiful" graphics.

...continuing... Beautiful graphics but not enough serious ? That's perhaps another question but i'd like to read comments about the real usefulness of this style. I'd like very much some pointers to instructional design courses about this topic, thanks.

If i understand well, your opinion is that this type of infographics is not a graphic design trend but a mere software company style overload ? But it's a bit confusing, since this style is "more visually appealing", to a certain type of audience. "Good-looking graphics not too scary for beginners" ?
