How To Design Your Own Infographics

How To Design Your Own Infographics | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects.

 

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.
