Killer Infographics is a boutique data, design and distribution firm located in the heart of Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. In just 2 short years, they have become one of the top infographic design agencies in the world with over 3000 infographic designs to their name and 250+ global clients including Pepsico, Toyota, Dow Jones, Adobe, T-Mobile and more. They offer a turnkey service from research to design to promotion of your static infographic, motion graphic or interactive design.
While Killer Infographics has become a leading infographic agency, it continues to operate as a scrappy startup able to shift focus quickly for its wide array of clientele. Founded in late 2010 by two online marketers, Killer Infographics proudly hosts a team of marketers mixed with some of Seattle’s best designers, to bring a unique level of service and strategy to the infographic industry. We sat down with Killer Infographics co-founder and Chief Swiss Army Knife, Amy Balliett (aptly named based on the many tasks she tackles in a given day), to see what keeps this agency running strong.
