You already know infographics work, the question is, how can you create one that will be popular. If you are like me you probably don’t have a design bone in your body, but don’t worry that shouldn’t stop you.

When I first started creating infographics I used to hire firms like Column Five, who are great at creating them, the cost was just a bit too high for a startup. So eventually I had to learn whole process from A to Z.

Here’s are the steps you need to follow to create a popular infographic…

Album Cover Art

This is from the album drafts bin from many of the recycled ones, but I like the overall look. This was done with another set of graphics assets for an android anti-virus company I was working for in Gurgaon. I used the dalvik code as the backdrop and used one of my shoot eye pics and started layering on that. Did no use this one though it looked good enough for me.

Debut Logo Design

I was working with some rather empty headed guys 🙂 in Pune, India and they asked me to do a logo for their startup company – WelServe. I am not at all excited to be with them and in Pune in the first place. However, I did this with them in the same meeting room in about 3 hours at night towards midnight. It was my first time and I they liked it Winking smile

Welkins Finalized Logo

This was done in Photoshop CS5, with mostly a contrast based design using black and white at first. Keeping the “S” enlarged gives more tension in the otherwise rather strict and simple text.

The font is the ubiquitous Trajan-Regular, with a slight gradient for the S using shades of grey. The black box adds a bit of interest and variation to just the text.

This one was for some weird guys in Delhi last year for one their their company courses that was in the design pipeline. I did this in their office room with them in less than 20 minutes.

Add a few paths and shapes and voila!

minibuzsolutions

Choosing a web designer can seem like a daunting task. They come in all shapes and sizes – from freelancers working at home to glossy new media agencies, and there is as much variation in prices and service as there is in size.

So how do you choose the right one for your business?

Select Your Marketplace

Firstly, decide what market your would like to select from: local , national or overseas.

If you would feel more comfortable meeting your designer, and running through your project face to face (maybe it’s the kind of project that needs to “evolve”) ,and your ethos is “quality of service” rather than “Pile ‘em high, sell ‘em cheap” then a local web designer is for you. They can usually provide better back up, and be able to meet face to face to discuss your project and iron out any problems should they occur.
