Infographics are images designed to communicate information to your audience visually. Even when working with large amounts of complex data, infographics are a great way to help your audience quickly and easily understand the message. These are just some of the reasons that make infographics one of the more popular methods of communication, especially online.

But what makes an Infographic stand out?

Well, it might seem simple enough, but there is more to making a great infographic than just a good design and neat graphics. These are both important, but these points are only a part of the process.

So, let us look at what you need to make a hit Infographic. 

Clear Purpose

The first thing to look at is why you are making the Infographic in the first place. What is the message of the infographic? What story are you trying to tell? And just as importantly, who is the story’s potential audience?   

You need to be clear on the message and the audience to create an infographic that caters to both. When you understand the audience, you can use images that resonate with them to make your message and, thus, the infographic more impactful. 

Accurate Data

Your infographic needs to be well-researched and contain up-to-date, accurate data. There are a lot of infographics out there, and there may be an overlap between them. Avoiding similar statistics and information in your infographic gives you a better chance of standing out. 

Look into multiple sources and try to find robust data to strengthen your message. The more relevant the data is to your audience and how it relates to the message, the more impactful the infographic will be. 

Solid Structure 

It is essential to organise your infographic in a well-structured manner. Creating an infographic that compresses a lot of information into one place is excellent, but if the infographic is not structured well, it defeats its purpose. On the other hand, a well-organised infographic can present all the information in a way that is easier for the audience to digest and retain. 

Well-Designed

An infographic is visual, so it only stands to reason that good design will be crucial to making it a hit. A good design is about more than just making the infographic look pretty; it is about matching the graphics with the story, the audience and the data. 

Having a structured infographic will help with the design process, and matching the visuals’ tone with your understanding of the audience and purpose of communication can elevate an infographic from good to extraordinary.

Good Copy

While primarily visual, most infographics will nonetheless have some amount of text. A title that catches the audience’s attention is part of good copy, but it is more than that. You can use well-written copy to highlight important information, focus on specific sections or give context to visuals, data or statistics in the infographic.
