How to make a brilliant infographic design

Step One: Gather Data

Gather information and stats about the subject in hand.

Step Two: Choose A Narrative

The best infographics tell a story, whether it’s a step-by-step approach or a detailed account of the customer’s journey.

Step Three: Build A Wireframe/Hierarchy

When taking a narrative approach, it’s important to plan out each element and ensure the “story” flows well. Also, some pieces of information are more important than others, so you need to highlight them.

Step Four: Choose A Visual Approach

There are many theories as to what style of infographic performs the best, but the overall consensus is that simple is the most effective. It is also important to ensure that the visual approach is consistent throughout.

Step Five: Release It Into The World

Once you’ve completed your infographic, it’s time to set it free. You should have a content marketing plan in place to help support the shareability of the piece.
