Our good buddy Paul von Excite is a designer that specializes in Logos, Lettering, Typography and more.
Here in Brazil there's a magazine called "Super Interessante" (which had an Abduzeedo cover a little time ago), that always features some really cool infographics. This is a field that if you make things right, you got yourself inside a great niche.
Yesterday I went through a whole bunch of sites dedicated to the subject, which took me complety by surprise, because I dind't know that there were sites only about infographics and data visualization. I really loved it, and made a little post with some links to awesome pieces of this art. Yes, it is a true art. I hope you enjoy these, and that it will inspire you somehow. Cheers! ;)
