Tips and Tricks:
Complete your research first! You need all of the Data in order to determine the type and style of your infographic.
Use PowerPoint, Photoshop, Word, and Publisher (if you don't want to use an online tool) in order to create interesting graphics.
Think about font and size of all TEXT. Make sure your end product is clean, easy to read, and emplasizes different points.
But before you look at any online tools, you should have an idea of the best practice process for any kind of design, be it graphic, product or anything else:
Before you begin anything, you need to decide what your subject is going to be and do some reading. There is nothing worse than an infographic that presents stale, old information or worse, nothing at all!
Once you have some hard data to work from, you need to begin to consider the design. Infographics often work best when the graphics reflect the subject of the data, so try and let the data inform and drive the design. In this part of the design process as many avenues as possible need to be explored.
Once you have outlined your ideas, try and work them together into several more coherent concepts. This is best done with at least one other person to act as a sounding board for your ideas, and to add another perspective.
Continue the refining process through sketching and iterations, and gain feedback from as many people as possible. You should begin to see the finished product coming into shape.
Now you have your final concept you can go about putting the finishing touches in, as well as any last minute refining that needs to be done. With infographics this usually means adding highlights/textures to really make the graphics pop.
