If you’re anything like me you love a good infographic; so much useful data in such a visually attractive medium is always a joy. To that end, Palm Beach Opera Director of Marketing & PR, Ceci Dadisman, put together a great infographic for the organization’s 50th Season that is simply fabulous. So much so that Kivi Leroux Miller is publishing a multi-part series about it over at the Nonprofit Marketing guide.com. But what can you do to kick off the infographic creative process?
Fortunately, I ran across another terrific tool over at lifehacker.com a few weeks ago and have been looking for a good excuse to mention it. Written by Alan Henry, How to Choose the Best Chart for Your Data delivers precisely what it promises; moreover, it has a few handy flow charts built into the process.
It is a great guide for those who get easily overwhelmed with where to start the charting process or for anyone the charting equivalent of writer’s block. Moreover, it can help make short work of piecing together all of the random bits of info in your head trying to coalesce into the perfect infographic.
Between Dadisman, Leroux Miller, and Henry, you should have all the inspiration and guidance you need to jump in with confidence and start having some fun producing increasingly awesome infographics that you can use at your website, print material, and just about anywhere else you can think of.
