You may be aware of the benefits of creating infographics, but you might doubt your ability to create one.
But, if you find yourself in this position, you’ll be happy to know you can create awesome infographics, even if you’re dreadful at design. That’s because you can use specialist tools to help you get the job done.
Read on to discover some of the tools you can use to create the best infographics.
Canva is a ‘drag and drop’ tool that allows you to create graphics for a wide range of uses. So, though you can create infographics with this tool, you can also create flyers, posters, and social media ‘quote cards.’
One of the cool things about Canva is it gives you a vast number of templates to choose from. This enables you to design a fantastic infographic, even if you don’t know much about design.
But if you’re using the free version of Canva, your access to templates will be limited. You’ll also find that your graphics will feature a Canva watermark. If you don’t like the idea of this, you can invest in the premium version, which currently costs around $12.95 per month.
Note that there is a 30-day trial on offer, and you can use this to determine whether you should invest in the premium offering.

This tool makes it easy for you to create charts of various shapes and sizes. This is vital when you consider that the success of an infographic is reliant on your ability to make data engaging and easy to interpret.
Another thing that makes this tool stand out is the ability to pick color schemes.
If you don’t know much about design, you probably don’t know which colors work well together. Well, when using Piktochart, you don’t need to worry about this, as they’ve already developed a list of color combinations.
