A new course from Adobe Software Trainer and Instructor Sally Cox delivers top-notch instructions on designing an infographic. In the course, How to Design Great Infographics, Cox covers font selection, setting up the layout, arranging content and selecting your color palette. This course is for those who already have their data and want to transform that data into an eye-catching, educational infographic.

Prior to owning her own company, Kreatable, she worked 12 years in electronic pre-press/printing and painting sets/designing props for the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” television show (WQED-TV, Pittsburgh). She also traveled the globe for 13 years as a very successful Adobe software trainer. Her passion for design is evident in her lessons.
