An Inspirational Showcase That Will Change How You Display Data

Information Graphics or as we’ve come to know them Infographics allow us to visualize relative data in the form of graphics for a much easier understanding of complex information. These amazingly illustrative and informative data visualizations can be explained using a variety of colors, objects such as maps, signs, and typographic elements.

Many of them break down the process of something that’s already in existence (i.e. BuySellAds Infographic) while others are close to the developmental stages and/or seen as concepts.

Creating Your Own

One of the most successful approaches for creating an infographic that’s just as effective as it is informative is to develop you’re own “framework“. It will help you streamline your creation process and allow ideas to flow freely. However, an infographic framework is not visual but operates on research, facts, and the data you feed it.

Before you begin designing any infographic you must take a few necessary steps in order to achieve the visualization of the correct data. This is what we call the “framework” because it keeps you focused and eliminates confusion. The following statements and questions can be applied to every infographic you will ever design. You can always alter it to better fit the needs of your project at hand.

  • First, you must have a deep understanding of the information you’re essentially trying to convey. What your audience is going to be and how they will perceive the information you’re feeding them.
  • Second, as you find out which audience your infographic will target you’ll need to choose what elements of design would be most productive and leave an undeniable impression in the minds of the reader. Which color would be most attractive? And what sort of structure should your infographic embody (i.e. a map, diagram, timeline, chart, and more.)
  • Third, once you’ve figured out the above, you must choose the venue in which you will deliver your infographic. With this being said, we’re referring to whether it will be in print, online, will it have animation, sound, and will the user be able to interact with the visualization. These are all important aspects of your design that need to be addressed accordingly or your infographic will more than likely fail to captivate the audience and deliver awesome results.

    SpyreStudios does provide from time to time tutorials on how to make use of Photoshop/Illustrator for various projects.

    I want to see a similar work done on making of an Infographic.
    I don’t see many walk-through’s on how are these amazing looking Infographics made.
    Please do consider this, will be waiting.

    This is a really great post. Many a Marketing Department experiences the everyday challenge of presenting information over and above the humble pie chart in the overused PowerPoint presentation and this post shows the results of a little imagination.

    I love this part of design. I have created my CV in this form in 2009: http://bit.ly/cOMFmY
    Also had a conversation with someone who was really in need of having his data shown in this way – the only problem is that it takes a lot of work and his data was changing every week (last data collected on Saturday) and he needed to present it every Monday – impossible to do and it would be very expensive.

    Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you can do with a few p.c. to force the message house a bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
