You may already know that creating infographics is not just a visual matter. According to Venngage.com, there are at least five steps you need to know to create an infographic. Here are the steps:

1. Create an infographic storyline

Infographics are not just about pictures, but also data. That is the reason why you must first determine which storyline you need to build in the infographic.

Then, the next question: how do you build the story? Here, you can position yourself as a reader and find out what interests other readers. For example, infographics of how to do something helps people; infographics can also show solutions to everyday problems.

2. Search the data

In this data-searching phase, you have various ways to gather data. One of these ways is getting data from your clients. If you work independently, data collection can be done through a simple survey online. Just make a survey on SurveyMonkey.com or Google Forms and then pass it to your acquaintances. As for reliable statistical data, you can look it up on Google Public Data.


3. Determine the infographic look

Hooray! You have successfully defined the storyline and collected the data. Now it’s time to make an infographic. Oops, wait a minute! What kind of infographic would you like to make?

Yes, infographics are not just made with one model. You can choose one from the following:

  1. Statistical
  2. Timeline
  3. Process
  4. Informational
  5. Geographic
  6. Comparison
  7. Hierarchical
  8. Chart-Centric

Which of the infographic forms above match the storyline and data that you have?

Below is an example the infographic Informational model:

4. Design your infographic

Making the design of your infographic is not an easy matter. Especially when you are running out of ideas. More so if you are still a newbie in the world of infographic design.

Therefore, you will need to enrich the infographic design treasury. One way could be by visiting Pinterest or Venngage frequently. As for getting inspiration for the color game, you can use ColourLovers.com or Paletton.com.

For the infographic-making process itself, outline it on paper first. Then you can imagine what kind of flow of information will be put in your infographic. To make it easy for you, apps like Piktochart, Visage, and Canva have easy tutorials to help beginners make infographics.

Infographic already created? Now it’s time for you to publish the infographic and send it out to your audience. Social media, of course, will be your channel to spread your infographic. You can use Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter. If your client has a Newsletter, then it can be a platform to share infographics, as well.

Good luck!

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
