Infographics 101: What? Why? How?

I truly understood the “power of images” now. Two, infographics convey a lot of information in a simple, easy to read and easy to comprehend format.

Since I had to create an infographic, I looked for resources on any guidelines, tips, tricks, best practices and advice on “How” to create one. Dr. Google threw up a lot of content. Sharing in this post the links I found useful
