A few years ago infographics totally blew up. Outlets like USA Today have been using them forever, but everyone in the content business jumped on the bandwagon seemingly at once. Why? Because infographics are tailor made for social media. They deliver a lot of information in a short amount of time, and that makes them super shareable with crowds who tend towards a shorter attention span. Column Five is a company that was in the right place at the right time. They are a Newport Beach, CA based infographic design, social PR, and content strategy agency that landed at #291 on the Inc. 5000 with 1,504% three-year growth to $5.3 million in revenue. It helps when your client list includes the World Bank, GE, and Harvard.
Column Five’s website focuses mostly on their work. You can browse more than 500 infographics that they’ve done for clients. If that’s not enough, you can check out The Power of Visual Storytelling, a book written by the company’s founders. You can get a better sense of what Column Five does beyond infographics by reading up on their services, and you can get to know some of their employees by reading the company’s blog. The only thing that I’m disappointed about is that I couldn’t find an infographic about Column Five. I also think their job postings should come in infographic form, but they don’t. You’ll have to read plain old text about positions like Front-End Web Developer, Content Strategist, Producer, and Graphic Designer. If none of those positions seem like a good fit, they invite you to reach out and tell them where you’d fit in.
