  • facts or how to on a topic- These provide readers with a reference for a topic, and often include ‘How-To’ guides that can be repurposed and used as promotional materials. They build goodwill with how to resources or bulletin board type guide to a topic.
  • “State Of”- These infographics capitalize on, well, the current ‘state of’ an industry, trend or idea. They often combine timelines with a vision of how something is changing. They are good for capitalizing on milestones or for sounding alarms. The best ones combine timelines with a vision of how fast the world is changing.
  • These, as you can guess, compare or contrast two or more things. They allow one to inject humor into content and trigger public debate.
  • thought provoking and meant to encourage discussion and analysis - Evolutionary infographics provide food for thought in a TV game show sort of way. They establish the source as an authority, and can lead to deep discussions about the history of something and its change over time.
  • Infographics can be categorized in a variety of ways. One way is by the type of information that they provide. Patti Shank suggests this is one way
  • Data is key: Make sure the topic is interesting and that you have a good and reliable set of data.
  • Make is trustworthy; add references to your data sources.
  • Do some good storytelling. Think of the infographics as a story where you build up awareness and facts using the data.
  • Make it matter. Draw conclusions that can be supported by the data set. Have an easy to follow red line that eventually leads to reasonable conclusions.
  • Choose a design style that matches the topic. e.g. popularity of classical music would use a more old fashioned, classic design, not a modern, pop art design
  • Decide on a color scheme that you can use throughout the entire infographic. Use color and size to on related / similar objects to make different values visually different.
  • Keep it simple. Find ways to illustrate complex and detailed data sets in a simple and visual way.
  • Use well known and easy to understand diagrams, tables, charts, timelines, annotated maps
  • Don’t forget that infographics are a mix of writing and graphic design. Make your case concisely and clearly.
