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.
Please note that many of the following infographics were cropped much smaller due to their lengths. We encourage you to click through the links for a much better view of the information graphic.
