Infographics 101

With Visme, creating infographics is easy! You can start from any of our wonderful templates, or introduce all of your own elements with a blank canvas. You can even browse through a library of pre-designed content blocks that correspond to different sections of an infographic. Simply drag-and-drop content blocks onto your canvas and apply a color scheme with just one click. Click to learn more about How to Use Content Blocks.

Here’s how to get started with Infographics:

From the Dashboard, click on Create New and select New Project, then Infographics.

You can explore the available template options, including different categories.

One great design idea for infographics is to think of a good outline for your project’s topic. Before you populate your infographic, step back and ask yourself:

  • What is the purpose of my project?
  • Who is my audience?
  • What messages do I want to convey to the viewers?
  • How do I want to portray those messages?

Once you have good answers to these questions, you are ready to create your infographic.

Select text objects, shapes, icons or photos from our vast library or upload your own. The Basics tab located on the left sidebar has assets to help you get started.

The Data tab includes all data visualization elements including charts and graphs, data widgets, tables, and maps.

Data widgets allow users to quickly translate otherwise boring data into visually appealing and easy to understand design elements.

Since the purpose of infographics is to teach a topic in key details, it’s a good idea to cite the sources of your information in your design to authenticate the accuracy of the data and contents to your viewers.

Tip: Reserve a small area at the bottom of your infographic (such as a block set aside specifically to sum up your topic and cite sources) to provide references.

When finished with your infographic, Share it with others using the steps outlined in this resource.

Tip: To print your infographic, we recommend you Download it as a PDF first (downloading as PDF is a premium feature. To learn more about how to upgrade your account to premium, check out this resource.)
