Telling something visually is a great way to reach the audience rather than telling something in plain text. In other way its the best way to say something in a clear cut way. Infographics (Information Graphics) aren’t created by everyone and certainly its restricted to designers who can create an infographics. But its not. There are many tools and resources available on the Internet, which actually helps you in creating your own infographics. I am not either good at creating an infographics but actually being a designer isn’t that hard to create an infographics. So here is my best pick of 5 tools that I felt would help you in creating your own infographics.
