I made an infographic regarding the sales of physical music media like CDs and, mainly, vinyls during the first half of 2021 (from January to June basically). I was inspired to create this because of an article about it from CNBC which contained the supporting data and statistics from MRC Data which in return was also reported about via Billboard.

With this infographic, I wanted to get across the most relevant and interesting information as simply as possible and I think I accomplished just that with a simple pie chart for weighing vinyl sales up against CD sales (and vice versa), both of which were neck-and-neck with each other, as well as a basic numerical list of the top four best-selling vinyl albums, with album titles and artwork to conveniently distinguish one from the other, of the first half of the year.
