Planning and Creating Engaging Infographics

Michael Opsteegh

Overview

Despite being overused and often abused by mainstream media, infographics are a powerful way of communicating large amounts of disparate data to inform or persuade your audience in a manner that is often more engaging than text alone. Advancements in technology, social media, the Internet of things, and biomedicine have created an explosion of data that paragraphs of text and spreadsheets cannot adequately explain. We have seen an explosion of infographics appearing in magazines, blogs, and business presentations in the last few years. Technical communicators need to understand how infographics work before creating their own or working with a designer.
