1. Start by determining the objective of the infographic
It is important to identify the purpose of the infographic before beginning so that it can be tailored to meet your specific goals. Factors such as target audience, message, and desired outcomes should all be taken into account when determining the objective. Consider what information would be most useful for your audience, what visuals would help convey the message, and how you want readers to respond after viewing it
2. Choose a style for the infographic and create a rough sketch
After identifying the objective of the infographic, consider what type of design would best suit your purpose. Choose a style that works with your brand identity and will grab reader attention without being overly distracting or overwhelming. A rough sketch can also be beneficial at this stage to give you an idea of how your final design will look before starting any coding or design work
3. Determine the content of the infographic
The content should be focused on delivering an easy-to-follow overview while still providing sufficient detail to support your objectives. Look into existing research and data that could add value to your project in order to ensure that your content is accurate and informative. Also consider including some visual elements such as diagrams or graphs as these can help break up text-heavy sections while still conveying important information in an engaging manner
4. Create an outline of the information to be included in each section of the infographic
Once you have determined what content will go into each section of your infographic, create an outline that helps organize key points under separate headings or subsections for easier navigation when someone reads it from start to finish. This outline should include an introduction, body section(s) with supporting data, illustrations/diagrams/graphs if needed, conclusion, call-to-action if applicable, and any necessary citations/references at end as well as proper attributions for images used throughout design if applicable
5. Gather data and images to support the information in the infographic
Data plays a big role in infographics since it helps make complex ideas more understandable through easily digestible visuals like graphs or charts; however this doesn’t mean you need huge amounts of data – simple stats such as percentages or averages are often sufficient depending on the subject matter at hand! Additionally look for relevant images that can help illustrate topics within sections – but remember copyright laws so make sure all them are sourced correctly.
6. Finalize the design of the infographic and add supporting text
Once all content has been gathered and collected according to outlined sections from previous step (4), finalize layout by arranging text blocks alongside relevant visuals like graphs/illustrations/diagrams etc.,and adjust font styles (size & color) accordingly so everything looks cohesive -allowing easier navigation throughout page when someone reads it from start to finish! Last but not least don’t forget to add supporting text where necessary – short captions underneath images can help enhance understanding while concise descriptions alongside visuals can provide even more context regarding certain topics discussed throughout the entire document.
