For my strategic communication class, I created an infographic about orphaned children around the world. The infographic is intended to support the CSR program, Swaddled in Love, that I proposed for a class assignment. This program, created for aden+anais, encourages people to donate a Muslim swaddle blanket to an orphaned child or give a financial donation.
After creating this infographic, I have learned some helpful tips to share for creating infographics.
Do Your Research
Make sure to do in-depth research on your topic before you begin designing your infographic. By already having the material you plan to use, you are giving yourself more time to focus on being creative.
Keep it Simple
Be sure not to bombard your reader with too much information. Limiting the amount of text and information on your infographic allows your reader to more easily understand what you are trying to convey
Using the same font type, size, and color consistently throughout the infographic will make it more visually pleasing. Font types, sizes, and colors don’t all have to remain the same; however, they should be consistent. Be sure to limit your infographic to a maximum of two font types, two sizes, and only a few colors.
