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:

1
From the Dashboard, click on Create New and select New Project, then Infographics.

2
You can explore the available template options, including different categories.

3
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.

4
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.

5
The Data tab includes all data visualization elements including charts and graphs, data widgets, tables, and maps.

6
Data widgets allow users to quickly translate otherwise boring data into visually appealing and easy to understand design elements.

7
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.

8
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.)
