Data doesn’t have to be boring.
Infographics are a perfect vehicle for visualizing statistics and pulling stories out of numbers. Why not turn your information into something fun, shareable and compelling?
To transform your data into a fun infographic, follow these steps:
- Identify the main audience you’d like to reach.
- Pull out the most important or jarring numbers that will appeal to your audience.
- Pick a relevant infographic template that will help you tell the story behind the data.
- Customize the infographic template to fit your style.
- Share the infographic with your audience across an array of channels.
Here are seven beginner-friendly infographic templates to get you started:
1. Fun comparison infographic template
We know that reptiles are cold-blooded, but what else sets them apart from mammals?

2. Coffee infographic template
What are the most popular coffee preferences, and how much are people willing to pay for their daily cups?
