Infographics guidelines

  1. 1. By: Ox H. Pulido July 12, 2017
  2. 2. Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.
  3. 3. 1. Useful Bait: Works well with most types of data. Rather than focusing on design, it works more for practicality, thus making it easy to read. For instance, a reference sheet where you can print it out and use it over and over again. If your content has many subtopics to a main subject, this layout enables you to segregate them into clean chunks that are easy to consume. 2. Versus/Comparison: This layout is typically split vertically to give clear side-by-side comparison. Use this when you want to tell your readers the differences/similarities between the two items you are comparing. This layout works well if you have lots of “bullet point” information to be visualized. 3. Heavy Data: Use this layout if you are working with a lot of statistics and charts. You can also connect the different points of your data by inserting a flowchart. 4. Road Map: If you want to visualize your process or tell a story, this layout offers good connectivity for your story or process flow. Add compelling screenshots or thumbnails sparingly to accompany your data. 5. Timeline: If you have a history/chronological events to explain, this is the layout to go for. Companies usually use this layout in their annual report or reporting their accomplishments and milestones. Use this layout to tell your story. 6. Visualized Article: If you have complex data or lengthy story, the best way is to tell it is through compelling visuals. So, this is the layout to go for. The focus of this layout is the visuals, not the text. You can also build your content separately into chunks then include a strong title for each and share them on social media.
