Creating infographics is easy with Visme. You can start from a blank canvas and introduce your own elements and design or you can start from a series of starter infographic templates to use as a great starting point to create from.
Or browse through a library of pre-designed content blocks that correspond to the different sections of an infographic. This way, you can simply drag and drop content blocks onto your canvas area and apply a color scheme with one click. Click here for How to Use Content Blocks.
How to Create an Infographic Using Content Blocks
The purpose of an infographic is to translate a topic or idea into the form of a visual content. Therefore before you populate your infographic, step back and ask yourself a few questions:
- What is the purpose of the piece?
- Who is going to be my audience?
- What message do I want to portray to the viewer?
Once you answer these questions, you are ready to start creating. Whether one should first create an outline and then select a template or vise versa is a matter of preference. There is no right or wrong, but make sure you do have a clear picture of what you want to create before you do begin the process.
Create a chart or graph
Click on the chart icon on left panel and you can access all data visualization elements including Charts and graphs. Each chart can be customized with specific bits of data to fit your data needs.
