Considering that this infographic is about oil, the grey and brownish colors work very for it very well. They are colors that can, however, make the read a bit dull and boring especially if you are not very keen on getting the numbers related to oil. They make the display look very serious which could be the intention since those interested in such an industry can only be serious business people or investors for that matter. The occasional red splash does not make it any livelier but it does ensure that readers note what is most important.
Looking at the presentation at first it is not easy to tell the sections outs. There seem to be too many border lines all over the display creating some chaos, especially for readers who would be in a hurry to read through. On taking a closer look, however, it is clearer to see that the sections are divided by bold continuous lines that stand out from the rest of the lines making columns and borders.
Sections two, three and four are the most dominant. Most of their texts are bold and in capital letters thus these are the areas on the display you get to see and read first even before the main title. Maybe the approach works for the presentation because this is where the majority of the oil numbers are. A similarly huge title would have made the display look a little more balanced though.
Images are used minimally and focus is given more to the oil numbers and facts. The map in the very beginning only serves to show the major oil countries highlighted in the presentation. If you are interested in learning about global oil reserves, consumption, and prices, the infographic offers you a quick look at what matters most.
