The 4 Parts of an Infographic
Introduction: An info-graphic is a visual representation of information. It sends images and texts to send a message to the reader in a concise and strategic manner.
1. The First Impression:
- Gives the reader a first impression of what the text is going to present or argue.
- Sets a mood for the text using images, color, font, words, and numbers.
- When analyzing the first impression you want to address "what are the first things you notice?"
- Now then, what stands out at second glance?
2. The Story:
- What is the main argument of the infographic? Normally you will find it in the title.
- What are the main points of the infographic? Normally you will find it in larger font.
3. The Data:
- What are the supporting details of the main arguments?
- How are the presented? Numbers, images, text, a combination?
- Does the creator provide the sources of the information and do they seem credible? Use Evaluate Sources!
4. The Strategy:
- Where does your eye travel?
- How is the information presented? How is it laid out? What is the tone--funny, cute, dramatic?
- How is color used?
- How are images used?
- How is font used?
- Who is the audience?
