Most do-it-yourself infographic tools provide users with pre-designed templates to choose from. However, some non-designers may become very frustrated by the amount of time they need to spend modifying templates to their needs. Some users may just want to pick and choose sections of the infographic templates and combine them into one infographic that fit their needs.
Visme aims to solve this challenge with a feature that allows users to browse through a library of pre-designed content blocks that correspond to the different sections of an infographic. This way, users can simply drag-and-drop content blocks onto their canvas, modify texts and apply a color scheme.
How to Create an Infographic Using Content Blocks
Click on Create New at the top left of your screen in dashboard to create a new project. Choose the Infographics category from the list of visual content options. Select the Blank Template as shown below.
When you are in the Visme Editor, you will see a block canvas. Once you have selected that block, a right panel next to the block will pop up. Click the + icon
and select Add from Template
in the dropdown.
A window will pop up with different categories of templates to choose from. Select a design that you like (Header for example) and then click once to add it into your infographic.
Tip: You can choose from dozens of ready-made blocks including a variety of header, body contents and footers.
You can also add a content block template by hovering your mouse over to the bottom of the canvas where it says +Add Block and click From template.
Once you’ve positioned all of your body content blocks, you can then choose a footer where you can cite sources, reference, link to you social media profile and even insert your logo.
You can modify virtually any aspect of your infographic to your liking, from font styles and images to icons and chart data.[/green_number_text]
