Lorenzo says, “A lot of times people ask what graphic designers do, and it really depends on the designer. When it comes to being a graphic designer for education, one of the most important things is creating infographics to help the audience, or the students, comprehend information. This article explains why infographics are vital to learning and digesting information and what goes into creating them, along with how to go about designing an infographic yourself if you don’t have the luxury of having a designer create one for you.”

The Benefits of Infographics for Education


“The average person can process visual content 60,000 times faster than other types of content. Since approximately 65 percent of people are visual learners, adding image-based components to your teaching materials is a smart choice.” – CopyPress, turnkey, content production solution

CopyPress breaks down the world of infographics into four cateogories: why they are effective in educational contexts, how to use them for teaching and education, how to put them to work in the classroom, and how to design them for education. CopyPress explains that most people retain just 10 percent of what they hear and 20 percent of what they read, while they remember 80 percent of what they see. To that end, CopyPress provides some examples for educators, ideas for students, and suggestions for design platforms.
