We featured an infographic a few months back about the life of Steve Jobs. It was extremely popular and captured the heart and minds of millions of people all over the internet. Recently, SoadHead announced that ‘The Life and Times of Steve Jobs’ was voted the best infographic of 2011. The infographic was designed by Infographic World, one of the best infographic design companies – who we’ve had the pleasure of working with for several months now.

Today, I wanted to officially announce our partnership with Infographic World. Our goal is to continue to feature the best infographics on the web, while Infographic World will continue to design them. If you’re looking to create infographics for your brand, I highly reccomend working with them. Email information AT infographicworld.com for more details.

Hand Jive [infographic]

After reading this infographic, the stadium full of University of Texas Longhorn fans holding up their hands in a symbol of team spirit has a whole new meaning. Apparently, the “longhorn” sign tells Mediterranean cultures that you have been cuckolded, or cheated upon. Texans traveling abroad, watch out where you show your Longhorn pride.

Hand gestures, like culturally specific slang, do not always translate well across countries. American travelers have enough to worry about without inadvertently insulting someone. Today’s infographic makes an example of several popular American gestures. The peace sign moonlights as an often censored expletive when thrown up in Australia or New Zealand, and gesturing to “come here” with the pointer finger is punishable with jail time in the Philippines.

I am sure this goes the other way around– does anyone know of any harmless hand gestures that translate into something derogatory in the United States? [Pimsleur Approach]

Tech Trends, Past and Future [infographic]

Happy New Year, daily infographers! I hope everyone had a safe and exciting new years eve. Aside from a mild fire caused by fireworks, I’d say that my new years eve was exactly that. Today’s infographic looks at the major technological trends of 2011, and predicts three more for the coming year.

The surge in group buying is evident to even the internet novices. Groupons have become very popular, and even smaller companies like campus cred are growing in college towns. These handy group buying websites are great for saving money and great for the technologically inclined.

Geolocation Aps have become increasingly popular throughout the past year for letting your pals know exactly where you are. I’m not big on “checking in” but there is no doubting the popularity of aps like foursquare and facebook locations.

Now as for my favorite technological trend, mobile photo sharing aps has to be the most entertaining. I don’t know any girl who isn’t a total instagram nerd. With the help of a few settings, anyone can become a vintagey hipster photographer.

Now as for future trends, All of these seem quite boring. Maybe because i’m not too involved in complex technology, but hopefully 2012 has some more cutsey trends like instagram to occupy my attention! [Via]

New Years Resolutions [infographic]

First post of the new year (for me anyway), hope to bring all of you even better infographics this year. To start off I have another Daily Infographic original hot off the presses to present ya’ll. For those of you who didn’t see our last infographic you can check it out here. Today’s isn’t as morbid as the last and is quite appropriate for the times, the topic being New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re like most people you probably made a New Year’s resolution and more so you are probably going to break it like most people. I feel like any New Year’s resolution is just a habit I should have in my life anyway.

According to today’s infographic some of the top New Year’s Resolutions consist of getting fit, drinking less alcohol, get a better job, so on and so forth. Some helpful tips to keep true to your resolution(s) this year: set realistic goals, start with small steps, pick just one resolution, and set intermediate milestones. Enjoy today’s infographic and don’t forget to share!

New Year’s Facts [infographic]

Happy New Year to all of you lovely infographic readers! We wish you a healthy and happy 2013! The New Years Eve festivities have now come and past, and hope that you all enjoyed a glass of champagne, a New Years kiss and a touch of sparkle.

Today’s infographic takes you through the facts of New Years. Ever wondered how many pounds of confetti are dropped in Times Square at midnight? Oh, well that would be 2,000 pounds. And we all will make resolutions to bring into 2013. I know I will make about 10. Some include yoga 3+ times a week and eat three healthy meals a week. Unfortunately only about 46% keep their resolutions after 26 weeks. Here’s to keeping our resolutions!

Eat your legumes and leafy greens and have a happy New Year! [Via]
