We have no shortage of tools and articles for how to generate an infographic, but the most important steps happen before you open a tool- identifying your audience, the topic, researching and tracking the data you will use, and planning out the best ways to visualize the information.

Have a look at an infographic about creating an infographic! From Visme’s How to Create an Infographic: The Ultimate Guide
