13:19
Before we start making infographics we need to know why are they important? Why does visual marketing even matter?

This video is a snippet of Lemon.ly CEO, John T. Meyer, giving a talk on the Power of Visuals at New Media Expo in Las Vegas. The 13 minute snippet looks at why visual marketing matters from both a quantitative and a qualitative angle.

Section 2: Start with Data
05:48
Whether you are making an infographic for yourself or a client, you will need to decide what type of infographic you want to create and the goal of that graphic. There are two types of infographics; brand infographcis and editorial infographics. In this lecture, John introduces you to the different types of infographics and how to define goals for your project.

Now that you have your data, it's time to discover the story within your research. In this lecture we define patterns and key points to look for in your data to make a great infographic. 
Section 3: Delightful Design
03:09

The first step in the Lemon.ly design process is to create a wireframe. So what's a wireframe? A wireframe is a blueprint or visual guide that represents the skeletal framework on an infographic. Essentially this is your outline for the infographic. Let's take a look at how to create a sweet wireframe. 

03:16

The mood board is a poster design that may consist of images, text and samples of objects in a composition displaying the mood of the graphic. It illustrates visually the direction and style in which the designer is pursuing. Take a look at this interview with Lemon.ly lead designer, Ashton, on how to effectively create a mood board.

Once you've got the wireframe and mood board complete, you're ready to start the design phase. Listen to this interview on designing sweet visuals with Lemon.ly creative director, Amy.
