Data Visualization: Tools for Creating Infographics

We weren't all born with the eye-for-design or abe to afford a graphic designer for every need. Luckily, there are many high-quality and free online resources out there to help—did I mention free? Here's a list of my top favorites plus a few points of differentiation for each.

Happy designing!

1. Infogram

Infogram is the the most intuitive of the bunch, has the most customization options, and offers many infographic templates other tools to not, such as pictorials. You can also upload data (excel, Google sheets, etc.) to auto-create charts and even make figures interactive!

2. Piktochart

4. Canva


Canva is one of the simplest tools to use. It also offers millions of images and even lets you edit the color opacity of each element.

5. ResumUp


Technically, ResumUp is only for resumes but it is so cool that it deserves to be on this list. Whether you're going into academia or industry, being able to pinpoint what your strengths and weaknesses are is key.
