    Hello,
    I want to create an infographic for my business, and I was wondering if you had some tips for this.
    Have you ever outsourced this kind of job, if so, where and did you like the results? how much did you pay?
    Have you got some tips regarding the way to present info and data to the designer?

    My budget is $150-$200. I'd love to get the best out of my budget. I've posted a job on Elance and found a couple of designers with a very nice portfolio, willing to create it for $150-$200.
    I also checked the marketplace here at bhw.

    thanks.

    If you found people on Elance willing to do it for $150 go for it, there are some great designers there.
    If it is just a small infographic you can find cheaper but if it is a longer version go for it.

    I think if you go to people per hour, there are more professionals there, mainly from the UK. The prices might be slightly higher but their quality of work seems great (base on their portfolio, i haven't tried any).

    Hello Emzed

    This is only my second post on these forums having signed up a moment ago, so hopefully I am not breaking any rules or anything by advising you.

    I am a UK freelance Graphic Designer. I would personally be careful of Elance and similar sites having had clients come to me who have tried to save money by going down that route. That isn't to say there isn't good designers on them (I use Peopleperhour as a freelancer occasionally), but just be careful and check feedback/reviews as well as portfolios.

    In terms of budget, it very much depends on how much detail you are intending to show and if you want the designer to fully design the infographic or buy in some of the elements (ie stock images etc).

    I have designed an infographic recently and I charged £120 which is approx. $180 so you budget in that instance is about right - I only "bought in" a couple of basic images. I attach the infographic just for interest.

    Thank you
    Si

    I've been burnt before outsourcing infographics. I'm sure there are some great quality / affordable designers out there, but I've never found one that can match the quality of an in-house designer.

    If you find anything awesome, let me know :)

    Just look in BHW marketplace and look for the best infographics and send the OP's Pm's to point you in the right direction.

    Since this is already the latest replied thread on this area...

    Why did you bump this? This is a dead thread and all it does is clutter the front page. There is little to no reason why this couldn't of been a pm..

    Then if you were to go to the profile you would of noticed the latest account activity was on september 22nd. So this user has been inactive for over three months...

    Please take ten seconds before posting and cluttering the board please.
