Creating and presenting visually attractive data is an art form. Infographics, also known as information graphics, are visual representations of data, knowledge or information using clever composition and visual flow in a clear, understandable, visually stimulating way. This course will teach you to assess data, define your message and then plan and execute well designed infographics that are clear and easy to understand. You can bring examples of your data to the course so we can focus on your particular needs.



This course is great for any designer who wants to create an infographic, has a basic understanding of illustrator, and wants to know the best workflow for executing this type of process from start to finish.



Some basic knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is required. However, this course focuses less on the software and more on practical examples and discussions.

  1. Joanne Phipps

    Great class, really impressed with the instructor from Academy Class and how much he was able to teach us in two days. I was a complete novice and now I feel confident in creating and designing.

  2. Rebecca Whitney, Managing Partner Armstrong Hope

    I have attended two of Marc Campmans social media workshops and found them valuable and informative. Marcs knowledge of the area and his non-patronising delivery made it an enjoyable event. He presents very well and focuses on the commercial uses of social media. I cant recommend Academy Class highly enough.

  3. Ian P.

    If you need training on graphic industry software then this is the place to go. I did a week long course and learnt so much, it would have taken me years to get that amount of knowledge. It’s not just the training but also the professional way everything is done that is important, such as the chocolate biscuits in the tea breaks so that you return for the next session ready to learn more.
