Infographic examples on Adioma

Unlike most of the other tools in this list, Mind The Graph is not a drag and drop designer. It works based on predesigned grids and layouts.

You simply need to input your data or text and it will format everything based on the layout you have selected. It makes creating infographics an extremely quick and easy process.

The main downside with their product being set up in this way is that it means users have much more limited customization options than they would with a tool like Canva.

However, if you’re looking to create simple but engaging infographics quickly it might be worth taking a look.

Details:

  • 50+ templates
  • Create designs from a blank canvas
  • Download designs as a JPG, PNG, PDF, PPT, SVG

Pricing:

  • Free Plan: Unlimited downloads of free templates

LucidPress is another online design that has a nice set of infographics that you can utilize to create your own designs, as well as templates for social media content, posters, presentations, and much more.

Where LucidPress falls short in comparison to other infographic makers is the number of templates they have on offer which is currently quite limited but also the fonts and design elements that you can add to customize the templates.

Compared to tools like Canva and Piktochart you get very limited high-quality design element options in LucidPress.

They have around 70 templates for infographics too, most of which are good quality.

You can download designs for free with Edit.org but you can only get a low-resolution version and the design also comes with a watermark. So to get the most out of the tool you’ll need a paid subscription.

We’d recommend trying out some of the other tools first though.

Infographic Types & Examples

To get your creative juices flowing we’ve listed examples of engaging and incredibly well-designed infographics below for all the main infographic types.

Timeline Infographics

If something has evolved over time, or you want to visualize the history of a specific figure or topic then a timeline infographic will help you do that.

These infographics usually follow a linear path highlighting important dates with supporting graphics, images, text, and labels.

Here’s an example:

Twitter timeline infographic from Vizion Online

Data Visualization Infographics

If you have a large range of data on a specific subject that would be useful to display in a more visual and structured way, then a data visualization infographic could be a great option for you.

Sometimes known as a statistical infographic, they allow you to present data from various sources in a way that’s engaging and easily digested by the reader.

You just have to make sure your charts, graphs, and points flow correctly and tell a clear story.

Here’s a great example:

Millennial Media Consumption infographic from Media Culture

‘How To’ Infographics

‘How to’ infographics usually depict the steps someone needs to take to complete a specific task or goal.

As the designer, all you have to do is define the steps someone would have to take to complete that task and use visuals that will clearly walk the reader through the process.

How to infographics can also simply be lists of tips that help a reader complete a goal or challenge.

Here’s an example:

How to cure jet lag infographic from Expedia

Geographical Infographics

If you have a set of location-based or demographic data that you want to visualize then a geographical infographic will work for you.

They usually use a map as the focal point and have supporting graphs, charts, text, and labels to help convey the story.

Here’s an example:

Brewery density by US state infographic from Beer and Brewing

List Infographics

List infographics usually consist of tips, facts, benefits, or related information that tell a story together.

The goal is to educate the reader on a specific topic and help them understand it clearly.

Here’s an example:

Typography and font infographic from The Logo co

Comparison (vs) Infographics

Use a comparison infographic if you want to compare two or more different things. You can clearly visualize their differences using a comparison infographic.

By putting them side by side you will help the reader easily see the pros and cons of each, or the similarities and differences. You can also utilize graphics, labels, and text to really get your message across.

Here’s an example:

Left vs Right brain infographic from Online College

Flowchart Infographics

Some topics have a number of different routes they can go down or a number of different ways they are connected.

If the topic you’re trying to convey falls under this category then you should use a flowchart infographic. These can help you show the reader the relationships between different elements to make a topic easy for them to understand.

Here’s an example:

Star Wars Ep 1. flow chart infographic from Marc Morera

Hierarchical Infographics

If there are varying levels of importance, significance, or difficulty in your data then a hierarchical infographic is likely your best choice.

These types of infographics can organize your data, compare them, and show how they are connected so your readers can get a clear understanding.

Here’s an example:

Norse Gods family tree infographic from Veritable Hokum

Anatomical Infographics

If you want to break down and highlight the different elements of something then an anatomical infographic could be a great choice.

Here’s an example:

Sagrada Familia infographic from National Geographic
