The Anatomy of an Infographic

Although I love designing, and the entire process, creating an infographic was something foreign to me. Because of that, I thought I would take you on a journey through a beginners process.

When it comes to the cloud, it gets a little tricky to compare apples to apples. I thought I would create a visual that helps weigh out the pro’s and the con’s of some of the most popular cloud service providers. I chose to cover Box.com; Google Drive; Drop box and Amazon Cloud.

GATHER THE FACTS:

SKETCH IT OUT : It doesn’t have to be pretty.

MAKE A DIGITAL DRAFT : It’s tempting, but this time leave the colors out, just focus on the layout.
WIREFRAME CREATED USING SKETCH

GIVE IT SOME FLARE: Go ahead and give it personality. Choose your fonts, colors and images. Here are examples of mine:

PUT IT ALL TOGETHER : The hard work is done, now make it shine!
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
