Infographics are visual representations of information in the form of graphics, such that, once you look at them, you can clearly get the full information without having to read a lot of sentences explaining the same thing. Examples are charts and diagrams.
Infographics are sometimes preferable to texts because it tends to get and keep the attention of your audience because it’s usually more descriptive as it creates a picture that can be understood and remembered. It also encourages engagements like comments and shares from people.
With all these benefits, infographics have grown popular over the years, increasing the need for it by more brands and content creators but it’s also time-consuming hence the invention of free and paid tools that can help hasten the process while making it easy for people without experience in graphic design to make beautiful infographics.
I have compiled a list of top 6 infographic makers, some of which are free while some are paid. Let’s go over them.
