For the longest time I have wanted to make infographics but I find that it is too tedious. I have no patience for such organization and design making. Mostly because I would have to do it in Photoshop and that I would have to make it from scratch. Just making a publicity poster for the organization took me 3 hours and an electronic illustration I made for my friend’s children story book’s front page took me 7 hours. So, finding piktograph.com really saves me a lot of time plus the templates are so cool. *hipstergasm/graphicdesigngasm
I will totally share this with my friends if they don’t already know it of course. I’m always late with these kinds of things and I only discover sites months after other people have seen them. But I am really really excited for all the projects I can make using this website. I’ll keep on practicing because despite the simple graphic layout, I feel like there is more to this site that can be learned from continuous use. And of course the aim is to make my own layout and not use those which are already on the site.
I like infographics because they are eye catching and easy to use. They communicate things better especially to a generation that is used to brevity and direct messages. People are sometimes even too lazy to read tweets, imagine those are only 140 characters, what then would happen if data was still presented the way they were 20 or so years ago. We’d all have astigmatism and migraines every day. With the use of images, the eyes can easily navigate through the presented information and digest the data more quickly and efficiently.
Gone are the days of boring reports! I’ll wow my classmates with awesome infographics and charts on my next presentation. Hahaha. #ExcitedKid
