Smart Infographics: Easy Design Hacks

Using Every Pixel to Your Advantage

There’s a very mindful reason behind our offering infographic templates in editable vector format and pairing them with minimal backgrounds: so that you the designer can easily adapt them to fit your own thematic needs.

If you’re in urgent need of an abstract or psychology-themed infographic design, we’ve got you covered with plenty of existing pre-fab templates:

But what if you’re tasked with designing an infographic for an article on available snowboarding apps or as an advertisement for a ski resort?

The entire concept behind creating infographics is to deliver complex information as easily and rapidly as possible. To accomplish this, you need to ensure you’re using every pixel to your advantage. What does this mean in terms of design? It means audiences shouldn’t have to study your infographic to identify the purpose behind it.

Saturating Your Theme

More specifically, this means that if your ultimate goal is to draw upon a reader’s love of skiing and snowboarding, you want to ensure you’re triggering this impulse from a distance and not burying it behind small text and universal icons.

The easiest way to do this? By taking a few minutes to turn a stock template into a custom template by adding additional textures and icons.

From Stock to Ski Slopes

To the left is one of our most popular infographic designs prior to any modification. To the right, we’ve leveraged the same design alongside one of our mountain vectors and accented it with a few of our skier and snowboarder silhouettes:

Which do you think will prove more effective in terms of grabbing a snowboard enthusiast’s attention from afar?

And how can you modify your next infographic to gain the same advantage?
