10 Basic Tips to Design a More Usable Website [Infographic]

This infographic contains more text that some designers would allow. I feel that creative and informative infographics are much more than a string of charts and bar graphs scattered on the page.

A well designed infographic can be a data visualization, information design, or a narrative. It would be very difficult to design an infographic outlining an event from history with bar graphs and pie charts. Sometimes text is necessary, but I agree, it shouldn’t be an essay. We must think outside the box and present our great ideas in a way that makes sense to the average person.

Creating Infographics With Pizzazz [Infographic]

Charts and bar graphs certainly have their place in certain types of infographics, but proper infographic design is far more than that. Infographics must be tailored for a specific audience and they must present a visual interpretation of useful and relevant information. They must start with a great idea and focus on a story that is clean and simple.
