Content

Most people don't like to read, and they process images much faster than text. In an age of online documentation, infographics can help your audience to process information quickly and easily. We'll briefly look at the added value of infographics, explore the main infographic types (workflows, data flows, timelines, and conceptual), and provide tips and best practices for leveraging infographics in your documentation.

Takeaways

You'll learn how to apply visual language cues, simplify complex processes in a visual way, create interactive infographics, access free resources to standardize infographics, and promote positive CX.

Prior knowledge

No prior experience required.
