We have lines and also we have pictures in these specific case, we don't have any picture here But in this case, for example, we have pictures on the infographics. So you can use all these four elements to show your idea in the best way possible. In this example we have These are great infographics about Burger Nation. The average of intake per capita to have the tax which is this guy here You have the icons , different icons, all I consider you don't have any picture you have line here simulating the Mostert.
