Creating compelling Infographic step by step

Step 1: Information Gathering- Collect as much information and data as possible and decide which content is relevant or should be used/converted into an infographic.

Collecting Info

Step 2: Visualize data- Well-designed infographics must tell a story, where one fact or data point is connected to the next. The best way to create it is to profile your learner( age, work, interests, etc.). Tell the story of how you expect your learner to read through the Infographic. This will give you an idea of how to place the content(orientation, flow, placement, diagram, graphs, charts, icons, etc.).
