Things to Consider

  • Consider the audience. What speaks to them?
  • Tell a truthful story. Many infographics are one-sided. Don't be afraid to share information that might be contradictory. There is a very fine line between editing and censorship.
  • Determine a narrow focus. A specific research question can help you & it would be smart to include on your graphic. Don't try to include everything about your topic, only what's relevant to your narrow topic.
  • Keep it simple. Less is usually more. Too much text or a busy image will be distracting rather than attracting.
  • Cite your sources, both of images and information.
