Impeachment inquiry timeline. ‘Cut to the chase’ with an infographic

/
2 mins read

Some issues are intentionally made confusing to distract people from the truth. 

Infographics cut to the chase. They combine facts, events, and videos into simple visuals that are easy to understand. Even novices can design engaging infographics with new apps.

DemLabs created an infographic of the events leading up to the impeachment inquiry using Infogram. This free app even includes links to external resources for news and  videos.

How we designed the impeachment inquiry timeline

We chose nine news videos from YouTube and used them to design a vertical timeline. We added facts from Wikipedia and other news sources, along with links to the original articles for further details. (A timeline is just one of several infographic design templates).

Infogram is integrated with YouTube, Unsplash and Pixabay which makes it easy to research multiple sources of information. This infographic, for instance links to videos from VOX, Bloomberg, Washington Post, ABC News, MSNBC News, Fox News, The Guardian and CNN. 

Videos from YouTube, Vimeo and other sources can be used in addition to giphys and links to other web sites.

Royalty-free images from Unsplash or Pixabay can be used, or new images can be uploaded for the infographic.

Sharing the story

The infographic is interactive and accessed through an easily shareable link. The infographic can be embedded into websites with just a line of code. The impeachment timeline is online and easily updated with new facts and events.

Takeaway

Pictures speak louder than words. Use Infogram to make your point loud and clear.
