I donât think I have ever seen a graphic with numbers spelled out.
That being said, the first question I would ask isâ Who is your user and how will they be using this graphic?
If itâs a graphic thatâs meant to be scannable (aka, read quickly), I would go with the numbers. Same if itâs being translated.
If itâs not, and itâs something thatâs going into a magazine, for example, where people are taking their time to read it, then spelling out numbers might work (even though it would be weird, imo).
