Infographic Design (Live Virtual Classroom)

It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and to take in large amounts of complex information and distilling them into a simple yet elegant visual is an art in itself. As much as it is easy to create those thousand words into a cohesive image, you still have to find the right way to express those words that will matter, and in today’s world where information is prevalent and essential, whether in product catalogs to news articles to food packaging, making sense of it all has become more of an art and a science.

In this course, we will identify the basic elements in creating a basic infographic, including using the right font, the right visuals and the right context to efficiently visualize information without compromising on aesthetics and accuracy, while we uncover the qualities of what makes a truly effective infographic that stands out from the others, as well as some tips on how to add visual interest to the reader.
