Graphics in Top Tiered Journals and Modern Academics

Just an observation and an opinion, but has anyone noticed that the use of colourful, three-dimensional and completely out of scale cartoons has proliferated substantially in high ranking (as well as lower ranking, but not as much) academic journals in the last 7 to 10 years?

If you read a paper in a lower tiered journal or papers from back in the good old days when the top of the line image processing program was MS Paint, you don’t see these fruity cartoons and schematics you see simple and usually meaningful plots and diagrams of data, chemical reactions, and experimental set ups.

Maybe this is just my take on it but academic publications have  become more visual to cater to the “there’s an app for that” type society that this world has become.
