  2. 2. Infographics   Why  Use  Infographics?   •   Charts,  diagrams,  images:  visual  info   • “Visual  shorthand”  for  complex  info         • Puts  the  informa3on  into  new  context  
  3. 3. Infographics   Dissec3ng  the  Parts    Three  main  parts  to  an  infographic:       • Visual  (colors,  graphics,  images,  icons)       • Content  (data,  sequen3al  process,   sta3s3cs,  etc)       • Conclusions  (summary  of  what  it  all   means  to  the  reader)  
  4. 4.  Three  main  parts  to  an  infographic:       • Visual  (colors,  graphics,  images,  icons)       • Content  (data,  sequen3al  process,   sta3s3cs,  etc)       • Conclusions  (summary  of  what  it  all   means  to  the  reader)   Infographics   Dissec3ng  the  Parts  
  5. 5.  Three  main  parts  to  an  infographic:       • Visual  (colors,  graphics,  images,  icons)       • Content  (data,  sequen3al  process,   sta3s3cs,  etc)       • Conclusions  (summary  of  what  it  all   means  to  the  reader)   Infographics   Dissec3ng  the  Parts  
  6. 6. Infographics   Tips  from  the  San  Fran  Beat  Online   Be  Concise:  Design  to  convey  one  idea  really  well.     Not  too  much  detail.       Be  Visual:  Design  your  with  your  final  for  viewing  size  in  mind.       Be  Smarter:  Build  your  data  and  explana3on  right  into  design,   and  don’t  make  your  readers  have  to  work  hard  to  understand   what  they’re  seeing.         Be  Transparent:  Infographics  can  be  used  to  lead  readers  to  the   wrong  conclusions.  Always  cite  data  sources  and  allow  readers   to  dig  deeper  if  they  have  the  desire.       Be  Different:  If  you  can  avoid  it,  don’t  use  a  bar  chart,  a  line   chart  or  a  pie  chart.        
  7. 7. Be  Accurate:  Remember  your  geometry  and  visualize   differences  using  area.       When  trying  to  convey  the  scale  of  your  data,  many  graphics  use   different  sized  shapes  or  images  to  show  amounts  rela3ve  to   each  other.       Be  ADracEve:  Include  visuals:  Illustra3ons  and  photos  included   in  the  infographic  make  a  big  difference.       Be  Varied:  Find  a  good  visual  style  that’s  right  for  the  data   you’re  trying  to  share.       If  your  data  is  about  countries,  plot  it  on  a  world  map  not  a  bar   chart  that  lists  countries.         Infographics   Tips  from  the  San  Fran  Beat  Online  
  8. 8. Be  Gracious:  Work  on  the  assump3on  that  your  infographic  may  be   viewed  or  shared  without  the  ar3cle  you  originally  designed  it  for.   Make  sure  that  the  final  graphic  includes  the  following  pieces:     Copyright,  to  be  explicit  about  any  rights  and  terms  of  use   Source  data,  so  anyone  can  check  your  facts   Designer’s  name,  always  give  credit  to  the  ar3st/illustrator/ programmer/designer   Original  image/ar9cle  address,  so  anyone  who  sees  the  image  can   find  your  original  ar3cle       Be  CreaEve:  Use  whatever  tools  you  have  available  to  create  your   infographic.  Many  infographics  can  be  created  using  simple   applica3ons  like  a  vector  drawing  or  an  image  edi3ng  program.           Infographics   Tips  from  the  San  Fran  Beat  Online
