Telling Your Data Story: Infographic Design Training
John Snow, Inc., July 21, 2017
Infographics are popular visualization formats for sharing either small ‘data soundbites’ on social media or longer form stories from a data set. Great infographics leverage the power of storytelling and visual design to engage audiences on a specific topic. With a number of free web-based tools available for infographic design, it’s possible for anyone to create these kinds of visualizations, but also easy to fall into the trap of letting a template (rather than a story) dictate your design.
These are the slides from a two hour webinar where attendees critiqued existing infographics, learned, and applied a simple process for designing compelling infographics, and got hands on practice in infographic design in Piktochart, one of the widely used web-based infographic design platforms.
