10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data - noupe | Presentation Tips & Tools | Scoop.it

They used to say content is king. But what really makes up content? Gone are the days when “content” meant purely text. Today, if you want to engage and enchant your customers, your content must have some visual cues. The human brain processes visual information much quicker than text. And with web 2.0 visuals like infographics, you can convey complex, boring data in a meaningful manner. Although infographics make things simpler, it can be time-consuming to create them. Here is a list of my top 10 tools to create your own beautiful infographics and more visual content (no Photoshop required!).

Wouldn't it be great if creating infographics was just as simple as writing regular ole text-based blog posts? Unfortunately, the reality is that making visual content like this usually takes a lot more time, effort, and let's face it -- skill -- than the written word. 

 

Usually.But considering the popularity and effectiveness of visual content in marketing today, you can't just afford to throw in the towel. That's why we decided to take all the pain and suffering out of infographic creation.

This Classic Storytelling Model Will Help You Give a Mesmerizing Presentation

This Classic Storytelling Model Will Help You Give a Mesmerizing Presentation | Presentation Tips & Tools | Scoop.it
Have you ever gotten a sense of déjà vu while reading a book or watching a movie that’s otherwise totally new to you? Obviously you have— so many stories are built on the same foundations of archetypes and tropes. Stripped of complexities, all stories are basically the same: an individual ventures into the unknown to acquire something they desire.

That’s not a new idea— Joseph Campbell broke the door down in 1949 with his book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces. Odysseus, Christ, Captain Ahab, Gautama Buddha, Jane Eyre, Luke Skywalker… different names and faces, different times and places, but all the same story. Not only that, the same effective story. What Campbell called “The Hero’s Journey” has resonated with humanity for millennia, and is the root for so many stories that we cherish.

So why wouldn’t this apply to public speaking? Any muttonhead can tell you that good speeches tell a story. This infographic will show you exactly how Campbell’s 17 Steps can lead to storytelling success. It doesn’t matter if you want to discuss Martin Luther King’s march to Selma, why you deserve a raise, or Walking Dead plot summaries. The Hero’s Journey can apply to almost any presentation.

For all the importance we place on text, it's an indisputable fact that images are processed in the brain faster than words. Hence the rise and rise of the infographic which, at its best, transforms complex information into graphics that are both easy to grasp and visually appealing. No wonder magazine readers and web visitors love the best infographics.

The 15 Best Infographics of 2014

The 15 Best Infographics of 2014 | Presentation Tips & Tools | Scoop.it

Every year people proclaim the death of something or other in marketing -- and the death of the infographic doesn't escape conversation. It's probably because while more people have caught on to the power of infographics for communications or marketing initiatives, not all of them are doing it well -- so it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

 

These 15, however, managed to stand out. My criteria here were not scientific. I looked for infographics that I simply could not stop reading til the very end -- or in the case of the interactive ones in the latter half of this post, the ones I couldn't stop exploring. Enjoy perusing the best of what 2014's infographics had to offer, ranked in no particular order (except for #1 -- I love #1)....
