Infographics 101

Creating an infographic is easy with Visme. You can start from a blank canvas by introducing your own elements and design or simply start from a series of starter infographic templates (which is a great starting point to create from).

You can even browse through library of pre-designed content blocks that correspond to different sections of an infographic. This way, you can simply drag-and-drop content blocks onto your canvas and apply a color scheme with just one click. Click here to know How to Use Content Blocks.

How to create an infographic:

Login to your Visme account. In your Dashboard, click on Create New from the top left side of your screen to create a new project.

You then choose the Infographics category from the list of visual content options.

Create an outline for your topic.

The purpose of an infographic is to translate a topic or idea into a form of visual content. Therefore, before you populate your infographic, step back and ask yourself few questions:

  • What is the purpose?
  • Who is going to be my audience?
  • What messages do I want to portray to the viewers?

Once you have answer to these questions,  you are ready to create one. Creating an outline for your infographic is optional but make sure you have a clear picture of what you want to create before you begin.

Select texts, icons or photos from Visme’s assets or upload your own.

The Basic tab located on the left panel has basic assets to help you get started on your infographic.

Click on Data from the left panel will give you access to all data visualization elements including Charts and graphs, tables and maps.

Infographic widgets allow users to quickly translate boring data into simple and easy to understand pieces of contents that are easy to understand.

It’s a good idea to add footnotes and references. Infographics are often data dependent. The accuracy of the data and contents provided should be supported.

Tips: Reserve a small area to provide references at the bottom of your infographic.

Once you are done with your infographic, click Share at the top right of your screen to generate a shareable URL when you click Publish for Web. To allow certain users to access or view your project, select Share Privately option and create a password.

Tip: To print your infographic, first download it. Click Download at the top right of your screen and select download as PDF file.
