Killer Visual Strategies, formerly Killer Infographics and now a Material company, is an industry-leading visual communication agency. We design and execute communication and content marketing solutions across a diverse array of media. This includes infographics, motion graphics, augmented reality, and interactive experiences. Killer’s custom-designed campaigns help clients speak visually to the audiences who matter most.

In 2010, our CEO, Amy Balliett, founded an infographic design agency. She had the goal of helping build visual marketing strategies for her clients. The company quickly expanded its services to include everything from motion graphics and interactive infographics to social-media micronarratives and brand books. Killer Infographics became an industry-leading visual communication agency quickly. The company landed a slot on the Inc. 5000 list for 4 years in a row, making it one of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation.

Amy Balliett has become a thought leader in visual communication. She has spoken at more than 175 conferences around the globe, including SXSW, Adobe MAX, and SMX Advanced. She is also a teacher at Seattle’s School of Visual Concepts, a LinkedIn Learning instructor, a columnist for Inc., and a public and corporate speaker on visual communication skills, presenting at dozens of conferences and events each year.

2019 was a hallmark year for Killer. We teamed up with strategic consultancy Kelton Global as a member company of Material. This empowered us to offer a range of new marketing insights and brand research services to our clients. We also changed our name from Killer Infographics to Killer Visual Strategies to better reflect the breadth of services we offer.

Terri MaxonMarketing Services Director, CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®

After an unsuccessful experience with a budget agency, we learned that going the cheaper route came at the cost of quality, time, and opportunity. When we switched to Killer Infographics, they quickly earned our trust and delivered perfection. We are so proud to promote our brand with the motion graphic and other products Killer produced for us. Our messaging is perfectly communicated in the graphics and the content is made to hold the attention of our audience.

Dr. Robecca QuammenCEO, MyConsultQ

I first worked with Killer Infographics on a large piece called "The Cost of Poor Web Performance Monitoring," which was my company's first infographic attempt. The KI team incorporated all of my requirements and came back with a beautifully designed and easy-to-digest infographic. They worked with me to make last-minute edits and were so accommodating - it looks AWESOME. The infographic ended up being run by Mashable! I highly recommend this team.
