Welcome to Infographics: Planning and Wireframing. I am Shane Snow. In this course, we're going to cover gathering data, and organizing it in spreadsheets, which will help us to find interesting stories that make for great infographics. We'll also talk about the different types of data visualizations, and awesome charts you can use for your infographics. All of that leads up to the real planning for an infographic; choosing the dimensions, and drawing a wireframe skeleton of your infographic layout in Photoshop.
