Weekend read: I will not make bad graphs

On New Year’s Eve, when I first came across this Full Fact post, I was in the midst of creating the images for the CMO’s annual report. So, then, the humour was a little on the dark side for me at the time, and I resolved not to feature in next year’s edition.

On reflection, though, the collection of spectacularly poor infographics is worth a look, as is the featured XKCD cartoon. So it’s my recommended read for this weekend.
