New Tool Tuesday: Piktochart

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 — 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.


Piktochart offers:

  • 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.

    I feel so out of the loop because before your announcement I hadn’t even seen an infographic before. Well, not one I’d recognize as such I guess!
