An Infographic about Infographics

An Infographic about Infographics | Psychology Stuff | Scoop.it

The last in a series of infographics about visual data design, we have covered why it's useful to create them, created an embed code generator for you and written an article on promoting infographics. We felt a fitting end to the series would be - you guessed it - an infographic.

 

This infographic (about infographics of course) goes through 4 stages of creating an infographic: research, design, publishing and promotion offering tips at each stage. If you are thinking about making your own infographics this not only provides some great tips but acts as a good example of an infographic itself...

There are a lot of tools that can help you create an infographic, but if you want to work for your nonprofit you need some design skills.    But a good infographic is not just about being a pretty picture, it requires research and making sure that it is conveying the right message.   Designing infographics is a hybrid design skill - falling somewhere inbetween print, web, and data visualization skills.

 

This post summarizes the design process:

 

1. Define concept and goals

2. Use reliable resources

3. Data should have a flow or tell a story

 

The article is written for designers so the 4th principle is get client feedback.   For nonprofits, it  means getting some feedback from people who are your intended audience - almost like beta testing a web site.

 

Has your nonprofit hired a designer to create an infographic or create a DYI version?   What are your tips and best practices.
