This infographic was far more difficult than I could have imagined. I had a simple approach in my design, but balancing and sizing the text was painful. Now I have a greater respect for the infographic skills displayed by others.
I used easel.ly for the infographic template. They have a large library of objects to enhance an infographic. I felt the software was easy to learn and navigate. Their platform was intuitive to work in. Editing was only difficult in positioning the graphics with precision. Overall, creating the infographic was a lot of fun.
I hope you enjoyed the theme and design. Please leave direct feedback, positive or negative. Thank you for looking! ~Ed
Infographics are a great way to provide your audience with information in a visual form. I feel that in this technological age readers are becoming more visual learners, and providing information through images can be the best way to deliver a message to your audience.
To further illustrate my point, I have included the following infographic on College Enrollment based on Race and Gender. The data provided relates to students ages 18-24 and the time frame runs from 2000-2017. This Infographic provides readers with a visual representation of bar graphs, images, and correlating textual information, about the trend in college enrollment among races and genders for a period of 17 years. It gives us an outlook as a society of the progress of higher education among race and gender.

I volunteer almost weekly for the American Red Cross and so I decided to make an infographic about blood donation. I tried to keep it simple and informative. The infographic was made using an online tool called Canva.
