Creating an infographic sounds intimidating, challenging, impossible, etc. Trust me, I know. That’s exactly what I thought, but it actually turned out to be an enjoyable process.
As we began to brainstorm, my team and I thought that creating an infographic about the college selection process would be quite interesting. However, we quickly realized that our topic was too broad. This is when one of our teammates came up with the idea of creating an infographic that mapped out must know/fun facts about Marquette before applying.
Luckily for us, all the information we needed was easily accessible through Marquette’s website. This made the data collection process much easier. Once we had our data, the next challenge was figuring out how we would present the data in an aesthetically pleasing and easy to understand way. We found that Piktochart was our best option. It gave us many options regarding colors, layouts, and graphics. It was also very user friendly and easy to use.
As you can see below, we went for a blue and gold (or yellow) theme. It was important to us that we include Marquette’s colors. The layout was meant to follow the idea that: this is why you should apply to Marquette and this is how you apply to Marquette. The data that we chose to include was information that we thought was both interesting and unique to Marquette.
