When I found out I was pregnant, a few thoughts raced through my mind:
- OMG, seriously?
- How am I going to tell Lucas?
- How am I going to tell my parents?
- How am I going to be able to tell the blog?
I had fun with ALL of the announcements I made, but I really loved building the infographic that eventually did break the baby news here. (Refresher in this post.)
And I did it through a very cool new tool — Piktochart.com. I used the free version, but there is also a pro version starting at $14.99 a month. Obviously if you’re a designer by trade, you’d design your own templates anyway, but if you’re like me and you have lots of info to share and terrible design/graphic sense, it can be a great resource.
- Design tools
- Built in graphics
- Easy-to-edit text fields
- Different templates, colors, etc.
- The ability to export to multiple formats
I also really dig the blog from the Piktochart team, which has some helpful hints about building infographics, etc.
I know some people think that this trend has passed, but I LOVE infographics — those that are done well, anyway.
