Creating blog posts images

During the last few months of 2016 I collaborated with the Social Protection and Health division at the Inter-American Development Bank designing images for their blogs "First Steps" and "Gente Saludable".
Here are some examples of the work we did together...

A couple of important things to consider when designing or selecting an image to go along with a blog post are:

  • Know your theme to be sure you are showing an adequate image.
  • If you are not sure about how appealing your photo is include some information in your image, like percentages or data (infographics are always a good tool).
  • Finally, take risks. Your readers are going to be more attracted to your post if your image is appealing to them or controversial.
