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.

And end users… well, they just like to look at great things that are beautiful, informative, original and shareable, ideally all at once. So how do you make a great infographic?


Much has been discussed about creating viral infographics and the role that story, data and design play, but viral doesn’t always equal “great” in a more conservative sense: a solid, informative, ethical piece that is beautifully designed and flawlessly executed.

Creating an infographic that is successful in the eyes of the client, design firm and audience is often elusive — but not impossible. At Visual.ly, the process starts out each project trying to do just that, and from the most successful projects (and the experience of going through not-so-successful ones), they extrapolated what are the key ingredients of producing infographics with the desired results.
