Get visual with SmartArt graphics

Cycle graphic type

Wash, rinse, repeat: That's a short way to describe content for the Cycle type of SmartArt graphic. This type illustrates a circular, or repeating, process.

Examples might include product or animal life cycles, an ongoing writing and publishing cycle for a Web site, or the performance review an employee works toward yearly that starts with goal-setting, involves periodic checkpoints, and culminates at year's end — then starts over.

The layout above effectively shows both the cycle and how each piece of it fits into a whole.
