21 Jul Infographics Today
Infographics, as we already know, are one of the essential ways to inform people about anything you have to share. Whether your company wishes to share instructions with employees or to share information with patients in hospitals, infographics are a fantastic and handy way of informing people. They are creative, informative, easy to read and understand, usually simplistic, and they don’t consume too much time.
Infographics From The Past
Infographics are not something new. They’ve been among us for quite some time now. They are easier to make today than they were in the past, but they are still the same. In the past, infographics were made by hand. Slicing images and texts from newspapers and combining them into a single sheet to create an informative infographic is how it was done before. Handmade infographics are the thing of the past. They could be considered as collage infographics.
With ascending technology, making infographics today also became quite an easy thing to do compared with the ways they were made in the past. All you need today is a computer and software. Knowledge and experience, of course, are essential for making good infographics. Today, more energy is placed into making a creative infographic. In the past, being creative wasn’t of crucial importance like it is today. Creativity is what will distinguish a successful infographic from an unsuccessful one. Also, another thing that creativity brings is sharing. If you’ve made a creative and catchy infographic and uploaded it online on your website or social media pages, it’ll be shared among the readers. The more shares it gets, the more people will see it.
Making of infographics became more accessible with new technologies, but it became much harder to create an exciting and eye-catching infographic today than it was before.
