Styles-of-InfographicsInfographics is the modern way of displaying statistical information, which is often perceived as complex and extensive. So, the purpose of moving towards infographic setting from the conventional way of data presentation is to make the numeric data look legible and easy to comprehend. If the infographic is very detailed but information is not shown properly there is really no point of developing one. Read on below to see some of the modern and artistic techniques through which you can present your extensive data and figures in a more readable and comprehensible style.

Aesthetic Form infographic

Aesthetic form infoghraphics are information-centric and informative pointers in bullets or paragraphs are required to be added for explanation. To make such infographics look different   from normal reports and papers, you need to take use of shapes or images relevant to the information given. In the minimal style form, if a pie chart is placed in the infographic then it will be dispersed so that each section of the pie chart is apparent, and then relevant information is placed close to that particular section. In this way, all information is added with a single picture but in different segments. Another style form common used in professional work is the corporate form. In this style form, images are sparsely used and stress is put on data display with proper spacing and lining. All figures and data are not placed in an orderly setting, but are organized according to their level of significance. The most important data is placed at the center of the infographic and the supporting or connecting points are placed at its sides. In this way, the infographic is able to carry extensive data with clear presentation style.

Style Form Infographics

The three common forms of style inforgraphics are realism, iconographic, and illustrative. These infographics are normally used in presentation concerning real life elements, like humans, animals, city conditions etc. For this reason, these infographics are image-centric. The image or photo used in the infographic should be strong and self-explaining so that little or no words are required to illuminate the image. Illustrative infographics have proved effective in displaying simple characters and augmenting their significance. An image of an apple with a smiling boy can be placed in the infographic to portray the link between apple eating habit and good health conditions. For such infographics to be successful, it is important to make a strong link between all images and characters as this is the component that the audience will remember.

Structured form infographics

Structured inforgraphics are normally preferred in college and university level presentations. These infographics use the setting of well organized and uniform pattern structuring of all images and text. All images are either placed in a vertical or horizontal line with some details right next to it. In this way, equal emphasis is given to all images, pictures, charts and text. In the narrative font style, connecting arrows are used to identify links two or more images or text, which should be placed right next to one another.
