Boot Camp #2 – Big Ideas in Small Packages : Creating Infographics

Big Ideas in Small Packages : Creating Infographics

Infographics are a serious trend, one that’s here to stay. Whether you’re looking to spruce up a boring page of text, or turn a complicated chart into something easier to understand, infographics are a smart way to quickly and concisely convey big ideas. Today’s clients are saturated with brochures, proposals, presentations, and other collateral, so it’s critical to deliver your message as simply and as beautifully as possible. In this session, we’ll go over what infographics are, how and when to use them, how to transform existing boring graphics (bar and pie charts are a thing of the past), and how to create them even if you don’t have a background in graphic design.


Learning Objectives for This Session:

  • How to think differently about “boring” text and/or data: when to use infographics and how to see the potential of what it COULD be
  • Real-world examples of how using infographics transforms presentations, proposals, brochures, websites, etc.
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to create eye catching infographics without a background in graphic design (we will create this in a live working InDesign session)
  • Learn the basics of graphic files, resolution, and appropriate usage in terms of digital vs. print
