Infographic: The body parts of a bottlenose dolphin

By:Devon Bideau


For this infographic, I decided to label the body parts on a bottlenose dolphin because dolphins are my favorite animal. I decided to use Canva to design this infographic because I have used Canva for the past projects and I am becoming more comfortable with how to use it effectively. I started this infographic design from scratch instead of choosing a template because I didn’t find any templates that related to this project. I like that Canva gives a lot of creative freedom when designing infographics but I dislike that I’m still not 100% used to designing infographics so it’s still a little difficult to navigate.


I didn’t have to do much research for this infographic because I was just labeling the body parts of a dolphin. For my research, I just googled the body parts of a bottlenose dolphin. It took me about 15 minutes to research this topic. The hard part of this infographic was the design aspect. It took me about 30-40 minutes to design the infographic and get everything places where I wanted it, it was a lot of trial and error.

Design process

The first step of my design process was to pick a background color for the infographic. I chose a light tan color so that my picture and text would stand out against the light colored background. I also chose tan because it would symbolize a sand color which relates to dolphins and the ocean. Then, I chose an image of a dolphin to label, I got my image from I made the text and arrows black to stand out against the background. I chose a very simple font because I wanted to keep my infographic simple and not messy looking. I first labeled my diagram and then I added the heading on the top and fun fact at the bottom. I did this in that order so that I would make sure the diagram was the center focus of the infographic.
