It’s pretty intuitive to use, but if you’d prefer a step-by-step, here’s a good one.
Use one of the infographic templates to get started.

No idea what to make your infographic about?
First up, choose one of the four topics above.

Next, research more about the topic. A bit of googling will help a lot. Make sure your sources are good.

Then, narrow down the focus of your topic.

eg. Creativity could become ‘5 ideas to make you more creative’.

My infographic is looking too cluttered!
Good infographics tend to rely on strong, bold images, and keep the word count comparatively low.

If you’ve edited down the number of words and it still looks cluttered, try changing the sizes of things. Make the big things bigger, and the small text smaller.

Ask for a second opinion if you’ve got one handy 😉
