Design in 60 Seconds: Infographics

Infographics connect you to the world by allowing you to share interesting facts and information with beautiful visuals. Engage your readers and expand your reach across social media with exciting designs.

In this quick video, learn more about infographics and how to customize a simple template from Envato Market. Check out the infographics used in this video from GraphicRiver.

 

Customize an Infographic Template in Photoshop

Depending on the template you download, you’ll need to use either Photoshop or Illustrator to edit the designs. Here we’ll be using Photoshop. Start by adjusting the titles, numbers, and all your important information with the Type Tool (T).

Change Infographic Titles with the Type Tool

Move on to customizing the colors. Use the Selection Tool (A) to select one of the shapes and adjust the Color Fill.

Customize Infographic Elements with Color Fill

Lastly, switch up the layout and organization by selecting each Layer Group to move the elements around with the Move Tool (V).
