Talk about titles
Name of the infograph
- Make it interesting: The title of your infograph should sound conceptual and catchy. You don't want it to sound too technical or boring.
- Short and sweet: Keep the title short and to the point
- Unique and innovative: Steer away from the obvious. Come up with an interesting name for the infograph that will attract the view but covers the concept of the topic.
Design style (look at some samples)
- Placement: Placement of the title is typically at the top. Does that work for your design or concept? If the poster is vertically long, maybe top is best.
- Consistency: Title might work best on another page. If you have a booklet or brochure, the title would be in another location. If it folds out to a poster, then you need some title repeated on the poster and cover of brochure.
- Treatment: Type treatment is important. The type choices will dictate the typography throughout the info graph.
- Highlighting: How will you make your title stand out. Often graphic elements are included like banners or shapes around the title. In some cases you just have to have enough negative space around the title and distance from the content.
