Information Design: Creating Engaging Infographics

Overview

"An image is worth a thousand words."

But maybe a few words can help to better understand that image, right?

This course will teach you cool techniques to make information more easily to be understood, more engaging and visually attractive! All that is possible with the use of infographics - or Information Graphics -, tools that make complex content more accessible to audiences, combining techniques of visual representation and design elements to help with complex information digest.

For creating those infographics, we will be using Canva.com, an online design and publishing tool with a mission to empower everyone in the world to design anything and publish anywhere.
