Create infographics – can I become a designer?

Designing infographics might seem like an ideal job for some. In order to create infographics you need to have several different qualities. While every infographic designer needs to be a skilled designer not every designer can create infographics. Here, we will explore more about the qualities required.

Visual skills

Every designer (web designer, interior designer, infographic designer etc…) needs to be able to see things that others can’t. They need to dream up a vision for a project and stick to it, making improvements along the way. If you cannot visualise an image before starting, steer clear of any job in the design field.

The ability to prioritise

One of the main characteristics an infographic designer requires is the ability to prioritise information, work out what is important, attach images to text and do it all in a way that is still visually appealing.

If you choose to create infographics then you need to ensure you have all the above qualities.

Create infographics – how long does the average infographic take to design?

If you require an infographic from a designer, one of the main questions that you will want to know is how long it will take. Here, we will explore how long a company will take to create infographics.

Deign time varies

You will not be surprised to hear that it takes different companies varying lengths of time to create infographics. The length will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • How busy they are
  • The scope of the project
  • Their availability

A good company will accommodate you

Regardless of their average time to create infographics, a good company will try to accommodate you. If you need an overnight turnaround, ask before ordering, just be prepared to pay additional for a rush order. You may catch the company at a time when they do not have other projects so that deadline might not be an issue.

An infographic can usually be turned around within a business week with a few additional days for edits. However, before you order, make sure you ask.
