About This Class

Hello my name is Rachel and I am a freelance designer creating infographics & illustrations for content marketing companies, entrepreneurs & small businesses and I love creating infographics & bringing data to life using Adobe Illustrator.

In this course, you will learn how to create an infographic creating graphs, pictograms and icons, integrating them with text to tell a story. I will show you how to design the visuals for your infographic to look appealing using a defined colour scheme with graphs, icons & text. Some previous experience in Illustrator would be useful for this course although not essential.
