Infographics are a great way to liven up magazines, newsletters and websites. I was reading an article by Johna Revesencio, “4 Online Infographics Generators,” and I think she offers some great resources for creating info graphics.
I tried out two of them and would suggest you give them a whirl. The one pictured on the right was created with Infogram and shows some stats for this blog. Unfortunately, right now Infogram makes it very difficult to export your deign – I had to do a screencapture and re-purpose it in PhotoShop. Also, the choices for teh chart are pretty limited.
Piktochart takes a little more effort to use, but is a much more robust tool for creating charts with a variety of colors, charts and foreground and background items. As a bonus, you can download the images to use in whatever format you require. The image on the left is one I made with Piktochart – a little garish, but I wanted to test out all of the options!
Take a look at Revesencio’s article and look at some of her other suggested sites, and start making your own infographics today.
Until next time.
