What Is an Infographic (Examples, Tips, and How to Make One)
Key Components of an Infographic
Just as with any story you write, an infographic should contain a title, a beginning, middle and conclusion.
Visual appeal--catch the reader's eye
Manageability--overview of message, don't be too detailed
Hierarchy--use headings, color, text and images to showcase important information
Decide upon one style for your images, graphics, and photos and stick to it!
Use fonts and images that are easy to read and interpret, don't go microscopic!
Use research, articles, and statistics to support your information. Make sure they are current, reliable and on topic.
Use quotes and give credit to your sources to establish credibility.
Provide readers with tools they need to follow up for more info, organization names, URLs, etc.
