“Whether you are using good old black-and-white charts or rainbow-hued, three-dimensional computer animations with musical accompaniment… keep it simple. You’re trying to communicate a set of recommendations, not show off an art project. While you may sometimes want to put together pretty pictures to impress your audience, the visual should not get in the way of the message. If you actually want it to do so, then you are not trying to communicate so much as obfuscate.” Rasiel & Friga, 2002
