infographics I was trying to post:

Julie,

I think the best illustrator for infographics is Marshall Clemens

I'd also check out a magazine called 'Good' (http://www.good.is).
They do a lot of those kinds of infographics:

Be very careful though a please ensure the data is represented
correctly. The example given
http://www.princeton.edu/~ina/infographics/ has some very bad
mistakes.

When they are comparing the size of sending the bullets and the
people are not in proportion to the data. For example the difference
between Israel and USA spending per capita is 36% percent larger but
the graphic is approximately 50% larger. The bullets are even worse.
The sending difference is 720% greater, where as the bullet is 4400%
larger.

This mistake is not unusual. Also be very aware where you going to
use these infographics as use on the web is very different to print.
Print will allow more detail, but the web allows interaction.
