Session Description

Want to explain a lot of information in a small amount of space? Need to convey a concept with a "pop of color"? Infographs are everywhere and, while they look cool, they also have to function well. Learn their elements, design processes, and how to create them in InDesign.

Our September webinar is designed for the beginning to intermediate InDesign user who works on proposals and promotional material regularly. Adding these design concepts to your skillset will allow you to make the most of your page space and entice your audience while visually conveying information.

A quick guide to InDesign tools used in the webinar and links to further resources will be provided ahead of time, as well as InDesign swatches created for this practice. Having InDesign open for following along and ease of practice is recommended but not required.

Session Learning Objectives

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Explore visual concepts and goals behind infograph design
  • Discover how to translate information into a visual story
  • Learn techniques for visually ordering information
  • Learn how to manipulate basic shapes in InDesign
