  1. MIXED CHARTS

Just as the name suggests, it is a form of an infographic that incorporates different graphs and charts format. This type of infographic comes handy when you need to show many statistics to your viewers quickly.

  1. LIST/INFORMATIONAL

It is one of the most common types of infographics, and it portrays list-based data or informational visual. This form of infographics mainly relies on information gathered and do not require much graphical representation. While designing this kind of infographic, an attractive colour scheme and a few icons can quickly drive the message home.

It can help you show your company’s history or the evolution of various products w.r.t. time.

  1. HOW-TO

This type of infographic shows the main steps involved in creating something e.g. you can show steps to create an attractive infographic through this sort of “infographic”.

This type may seem similar to the “how-to” infographics, but it is distinct in the fact that it explicitly incorporates a process of something i.e. usually a decision-making process. Process infographics also referred as decision-tree or flowchart.

You can use location infographics when you need to show trends across regions or nation e.g. if you want to communicate population of Muslims around the globe visually, then spread out the map and show populations in certain areas (numerically).
