I'm a communications specialist in information Technology at a university. Part of my job is promoting all our free services. Another part of my job involves sharing data. I've made a few infographics in the past with InDesign. My issue is that I'm not super great with data. Does anyone have any experience turning data into beautiful, simple infographics? The CIO at my workplace actually loved my work so much that I created some simple Power Point infographic slides for him. However, I want to take it up a notch and be able to turn data into beautiful designs, charts, etc. Should I try another program? Is there an Adobe program that helps sort and visualize data?
Thanks for your question! I love infographics and they are a hot topic right now. I use Adobe Illustrator to create most of my infographics, because I love the swatch libraries and Graph Tool, but you can use Adobe InDesign as well. I also have used PowerPoint to create simple inforgraphics, as well. I just developed a course for HOW Design University on Designing Infographics, if you're interested. Here's the link, and best of luck to you!
