Best and Worst
Show don't Tell
Infographics are visual tools for learning, you should not just list data in bullet form.
The first rule when you are designing an infographic about any topic is to deliver the data in a visual way.
Creating a SUCCESSFUL infographic is not as simple as just creating a colorful graph in excel and calling it a day, a successful infographic takes that colorful graph to the next level by making it intriguing. Intrigue is the defining line between delivering the data to the recipeint in a way that makes them want to learn, and creating an algebra textbook
Creating Excel sheets is not the same things as creating an infographic
Although Infographics are a great way to take the most boring information and make it seem interesting and understandable, that does not mean that you need to turn the data into a kindergartner's art project.
Their is no pot of Gold at the end of a rainbow
The most important thing about infographics that really make them pop is the colors that they use, when you are choosing colors that you want to use stick to 3 main colors, if you want to add more colors make sure that they stem from your original 3. Make sure that you choose neutral colors. When in doubt, show it to your Grandparents if they can't read it, choose different colors.
Just because your computer has 500 fonts doesn't mean you should use all of them…at once
The goal of infographics is to deliver data, it's difficult to deliver data when you can't read something. When you are deciding on which typefaces or fonts that you should use keep these things in mind, Choose typefaces that have similar proportions and are simple. Make sure if you do have a paragraph of text that it's readable and at a reasonable size. When in doubt, just look at this infographic on selecting the right typefaces:
Last but certainly not least is layout. Layout is what will help you create an infographic that will actually allow you to achieve your goal of delivering the information. These are the words you need to remember: Hierarchy and order, balance, and white space.
Layout is Key
When you are creating your infographic make sure that you are telling a story in a logical way that's easy to follow.
Lay out your elements evenly so that it makes it easier to highlight certain information. Allowing the background to show helps the viewer's eye organize the data. Establishing a sense of order and balance will make your infographic easy on the eye and allows the viewer to easily digest and skim the information provided.
tips for designing infographics
1.Most of us tend to have shorter and shorter attention spans, for which (unsurprisingly) looking at a captivating image beats out reading large amounts of text.
2.We are constantly exposed to information overload via our computers, tablets, and smartphones. The key is no longer to get the information out there, but to get attention for it.
3.Human beings are highly visual and can absorb visual information faster and more easily than other kinds of information.
4.Most people forget a large amount of what they’ve read, but they do remember what they’ve seen.
5.Infographics are more fun and engaging than plain text.
