Possibly the simplest infographic generator online

Sometimes you’re in a rush or simply don’t have the design skills to create a detailed infographic, so if you have 30 seconds and a simple idea you’d like to convey visually, GOOD Labs has created what could be the simplest “infographic” generator online.

Different styles of infographics

The rise in demand for visualization of information in the form of graphics and infographics is happening at a staggering pace and these visualizations are popping up in board rooms across America, on blogs and social networks, and in client presentations, in an effort to present data in a memorable, easy to digest visual format.

Truth be known, most of these visualizations are just as ugly as a Power Point presentation theme from 1994, but at least people are trying, we suppose. Speaking of Power Point, many people whip out their drag and drop skills and create “infographics” for lack of a better term, to achieve their goal of visualization, but this often falls short. Yesterday, AGBeat introduced you to Piktochart, an infographic app for busy professionals that come with pre-loaded themes of infographics that are far superior to most peoples’ PPT skills.

But sometimes, you may be looking for a fast, simple way to add a single chart to your blog to illustrate a point. Enter GOOD Labs, an “infographic” creator, which is more of a graph creator, but let’s go with “infographic” for the time being. Do you just want to do a quick pie chart or venn diagram but have horrible design skills? In seconds, with just a few options, you can create a quick image for a mailer or blog that is either serious or snarky.

After choosing which type (pie chart or venn diagram), you drag and drop as to the placement of the circles, then pick a title, color, labels, and publish. It gives you a shortened URL directly to the new diagram, and the ability to share it across your social networks. It seriously could not be simpler.

Below is a finished product:

If you’re looking for inspiration, we’ve hand selected four graphics created through GOOD Labs, some are serious and some are silly, but it’s a good refresher for what you can do. You may want to illustrate your skills with a venn diagram about the intersection between your negotiation skills and wide professional network with making money as the sweet spot, or perhaps you want to blog that only 54% of transactions in your industry close within X days via a pie chart.
