Hi, I’m Sujani Siva
Here’s why I created
Infographics 101 for Public Health Professionals
Infographics 101 for Public Health Professionals
For over 7 years, I have been designing infographics, and have seen first hand its effectiveness in disseminating key messages to different audiences. That being said, I had to learn A LOT of new concepts like design principles, visualization techniques, colour palettes, and font pairing, on my own, and then apply it to public health.
During my uphill battle against this steep learning curve, I charted my progress to find what works and what doesn’t. I’ve poured the lessons I have learned, into this course to give you the strategies that truly work from start to finish.
With my guided lessons and strategies, I have witnessed people with very little design background jump into designing their own infographic, with confidence; and go off to produce more infographics!
I’m here to help you take your public health data and information and tell a story using infographics.
I am here to help you, so let’s get started!
Infographics 101 was designed with public health professionals in mind. Each and every facet of the course exists to ensure that you build the confidence to design infographics with ease.

Why some professionals are excited about this course
“I am very interested in learning more about the process of developing graphic design content in the public health context. This is something I have had to do at different stages of my education and at work, and I’ve been mostly self-taught given that I had little time (and money) to invest in a formal design training. PH SPOT’s course plan and the materials developed for it represent that exact need I have been feeling over the years, and I’m really excited to get a more solid understanding of the steps involved in the creation of graphic design art. It will be great to develop these skills in a setting that is specifically targeted for public health professionals since this will allow to address specific concerns and ideas unique to this field.”

Overcome the fear of getting started. Action is always the best teacher, and Infographics 101 has the action plans you need to succeed.
What you’ll learn
How to start, design and publish beautiful infographics
Across 6 distinct modules, you will learn about:
- The what and how of design: You’ll gain an understanding of how design is influential when building an infographic – from understanding the basics of design to the core elements and principles that makes or breaks an infographic. You will understand how different infographic layouts can be used with the different pieces of information and data you have; and then go on to understand what to do and not to do in designing your own.
- The art of serving the perfect meal: A well designed infographic is like the perfect meal, which means it requires careful thought on choosing the main ingredients (relevant data/information), how to process them (creating graphs, identifying images, choosing colour and fonts), how to plate them (the order and sequence of designing), and finally, how to best serve the meal (the best way to publish the content). No steps are missed, you will learn everything you need to from the very beginning to the very end.
- Mastering the technical challenge: I’ll help you with the technical setup required to start designing like a professional – including choosing the software that works for your organization, finding quality icons and images, setting page size, and formats to publish the infographic.
