20+ Tools To Create Your Own Infographics


hongkiat.com

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we’re listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually.Read Also: The Infographic Revolution: Where Do We Go From Here?

What do your ideas look like?

The next time you have an idea, grab a piece of paper and sketch it out.  Now take a look.  How did you translate it from your brain to the page?  Did you write a paragraph? Draw a picture? Make a diagram?  Now ask a coworker to sketch the same idea – chances are, their page will look very different from yours.

There are many different kinds of thinkers. More often than not, we wind up working with people who understand the world in vastly different ways from ourselves. It’s what we mean when we say, “great ideas can come from anywhere.”  Sometimes, what’s obvious in one mode of thinking is remarkably complex in another.
