Infographic on What Colors Mean in Different Cultures

Graphic designer David McCandless made an infographic that describes connotations associated with different colors in different cultures. It serves as the cover illustration for Information is Beautiful, a book of infographics that McCandless and other designers have composed. Pictured above is one small part of the much larger whole.

This 'infographic' is just a perfect example of why most infographics are crap.

They missed out on a pile of common connotations, and I agree - the format is *terrible*. Typical case of someone thinking they're clever when they're not.
