How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less

How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

From word clouds to network data visualizations, infographics have become a primary format for content in a relatively short period of time. Although the ‘infographic’ is nothing new, its proliferation and evolution has been nothing short of exponential in the past few years.

If you want to get a message across, whether it is for your business, blog, or book club, using an infographic can be the best way to do it. If you’re incapable of drawing a recognizable human stick figure, let alone an entire data visualization, you may be agonizing over the disturbing fact that infographics are all the rage.

It just so happens that there are many people out there who want to deliver a message using an infographic who do not have any artistic skills. It’s lucky for us that tools and resources have popped up all over the place to help even the most hopeless of us (like me) create beautiful infographics.

Infographic Design: Finding a Guide | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

The emphasis on infographics in content marketing is at an all-time high, and the idea of displaying information graphically to convey complex data is not new. Edward Tufte, the American statistician and noted pioneer in the field of data visualization, references in his book- The Visual Display of Quantitative Information- a diagram created in 1869 by Charles Joseph Minard which shows Napoleon’s march to Moscow in the War of 1812. Tufte considers this diagram as perhaps the best statistical graphic ever drawn, and it’s still in use as a teaching aide today.

With the flood of attention on infographics, it’s important for marketers to quickly adapt their content strategies. One of the most effective guides I’ve seen so far was published by Brafton. This guide does a great job of explaining the need for good design, ways to approach content and design, and most importantly to marketers, ways to measure effectiveness.
