    This is quite possibly one of the worst infographics I have ever encounterd. Not only does it not contain any new, relevant or intriguing information sorted in a useful and easy to comprehend format (It's a wall of text), it is also visually unappealing, fundamentally flawed, and boring (again, wall of text). The fundamentally flawed portion of this piece comes from the complete text being obscured by the fade to white. The information is not presented in a fully comprehendable format, so the information does not disseminate to the reader. It is a boring wall of text without any relevant pictures with an uninteresting gradient. It shouldn't matter that this is your first graphic ever, because you could have done some reasearch into making infographics before you started this, especially before you published this failure to the internet for maybe 10 people to see (cause it's SCO who actually reads that).

    HOWEVER, you can improve this graphic by adding a relevant picture or perhaps a graph (kind of why it's called a GRAPHic, a simple block of paragraph text does not need to be formatted into a picture). You should use a more subtle gradient that allows the text to actually be read, as the gradient makes the text get cut off in the end. Finally use a more interesting typographical format because what you have is boring. Hope your next graphic, if you actually make one, is better. 0/10
