4.Think through readers perspective:
Do not just create Infographics. Try to solve the audience problem. Think about how this image can help them.
If that picture cannot impress you, then it definitely will not impress the target audience & can never entertain them.
5.Use icons and symbols:
Use sufficient symbols and icons to explain the topics. Make sure not to clutter the infographic with a lot of texts. Always remember people prefer symbols, icons, and signs over text.
6. Don’t make it too complex and long:
Don’t ever make your Infographic too complex because the audience can find it difficult to understand. You can get it reviewed by your friends and ask them if they understand the topic.
7.Use charts and maps:
Using maps and charts in your infographic makes it real and supportive. If you think it makes sense, use it to explain facts. It also gives your infographic a creative feel.
