I love infograms! Yes, we’ve been putting information into a visual format for years–but the infograms combine images and text in lots of new and exciting ways that are fun to create and interesting to read.

This is one of my favorite sites about infographics: http://www.coolinfographics.com/

Multimedia is king out here on the Web, and the free services for creating infograms let those of us without graphics experience and fancy software create some fun graphics. I created this one promoting the library training program I teach for Credenda Virtual College using http://infogr.am/

The software is pretty easy to follow, although I must admit I got some additional tips from this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNtCtvsaFgU

Have fun in 2014, whether it’s with graphics or writing or combining the two!
