Free Programs for Creating Infographics

There are a ton of fun, free tools online that can help take your activist efforts to the next level. Designing infographics can be a useful way to expand your understanding of new media and online tools, while also creating awesome and engaging visuals to enhance your campaign.

 

Check out this post from the Creative Bloq on some of the free programs out there to help you build infographics – without spending hours designing them from scratch.

 

Different systems work best depending on your information and goals. For instance, resources like Piktochart and Venngage will give you a colourful, picture-heavy representation of simpler data splits, while apps like Get About or InFoto Free are for more specific outputs (social media activity and cell phone photography).

 

If you’ve already experimented with infographics, see if any of these programs will offer you a new and fresh take on your usual process:

-Google Developers

-Easel.ly

-Piktochart

-Infogr.am

-Visual.ly

-InFoto Free

-Venngage

-Dipity

-Get About

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
