Infography is one of the best way to communicate some complex ideas in a simple manner. It’s possible to create infographics from scratch, I’d even say it’s encouraged if you are a graphic designer. However, you will often not have the time or budget to create complex custom infographics. Luckily, there are excellent tools to make your life easier.
