A very recent trend in online environment is to represent the information by using infographics. Instead of a huge table that many times is associated with boredom, an infographic is definitely more appealing and interesting.
Much more, people are easier attracted by visual than brute information. The psychologists demonstrated that visual power is very important in making decisions and the designers wisely use this fact. In conclusion, creating an infographic may bring a lot of advantages, but to design one isn’t quite easy as some people think. First of all it is very difficult to find a subject that isn’t covered, secondly the information must be very original and nowadays it’s almost impossible to offer something original no matter what you are doing. Thirdly, but not at least, the design of an infographic must be eye-catching, or no one will spend his time on a mediocre work.

On the other hand, an interesting infographic that is well-marketed may be a great source of personal satisfaction and material compensation. A good infographic brings exposure to the creator- both from designers community but also from ordinary people. You never know, but a small percentage from the last group could turn into loyal customers. In fact, quality will never die and surely a cool infographic won’t be fully neglected. Across time, someone will discover it. Nevertheless, designing amazing masterpieces without marketing isn’t necessarily the best approach- a better one is to start marketing and “selling” your qualities. Fortunately, there are tons of websites that showcase infograhics, therefore you may upload your works and ask for feedback; be sure, if yours creations are cool, these will be immediately remarked. The websites where infographics are uploaded should be used by other designers as an inspirational source and in this way everyone has advantages and nothing to lose.

Searching for the best online places where infographics are presented is a time wasting activity and it requires patience- items not very accessible to many of us. In order to help people needing inspiration to design new infographics I added here 15 websites where stunning works are uploaded. Don’t be shy and start sharing your works, you will never evolve without feedback, no matter if it’s positive or less eulogistic.
You should never ignore the well-known websites as Deviantart, Behance or Flickr but I preferred to not include because of the large plateau of subjects developed. The next 20 websites are mostly focused on what infographic really means. This fact doesn’t mean that, i.e. on Behance you won’t discover wonderful infographics. It’s quite probable to miss some websites, feel free to complete my post with your interesting observations, I will be grateful to you.
You are welcomed to upload your creation here and you will get good exposure if it is interesting and professional made. The infographics posted are all well done, therefore if you need some examples of good infographic design, visit it.

Here is the same recipe: good quality, many infographics, accessible user interface so bookmark it.
It is a very complex website that posted many infographics. The topics “attacked” are very different from Twitter activity during 2012 European Football Tournament to Historical evolution of the European borders.
I know that by presenting the portfolio of a design agency isn’t quite fair, but when the quality of work is higher than the average works, it became mandatory to show people their cool ideas. The ideas behind these infographics are simply the best and you should visit the website to make an idea about the quality of the items exposed.
