4 Top Tips for Creating Infographics That Work Across Platforms & Channels

Infographic trends include concise images & focused messaging designed for multiple uses

NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Infographics are a preferred content type among marketers for good reason: they are visually enticing, convey complex data in a simplified format, and are shareable on social, email, blogs, and even press releases. When it comes to creating infographics however, there are two common pitfalls: either the infographic is too lengthy and complex, or content creators just don't know where to begin. PR Newswire's Senior Creative Manager, Jamie Heckler, shares her expert advice on how to create infographics for maximum effectiveness:

  • Start with 101 design basics
    Sketch out your ideas on paper, receive feedback, and create a hi-res original that can be scaled down later
  • Design with multiple uses in mind
    Infographics are unique in their ability to stand alone while telling a complete story. Think about the different ways you can repurpose your infographic for use throughout a campaign cycle
  • Make it viewer friendly
    Be concise and refrain from lengthy infographics in order to retain viewer attention and convey your message as quickly as possible
  • Make it mobile friendly
    Audiences are viewing more and more content via smartphones and tablets, so don't risk losing visibility among this highly engaged audience
