About the Episode:

In today’s episode, we’re talking to Anna Vital, an infographic designer who’s worked with companies like Google, LegalZoom, Cisco, The World Bank and more.

Anna is also the Founder of Adioma, her infographic maker in use by over 13,000 people. Anna, originally from Ukraine, moved to the US for a year abroad during high school, and came back to finish up her college career, then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area for law school.

And it was during her studies that she started getting into infographics—first as a way to visually help herself understand the course material better, and then she started creating infographics to generate interest for startup events she was organizing with friends called Funders and Founders.

That’s when things really started to take off her infographic series chronicling the founder journeys of entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos went super viral and got millions of views.

After that, she began fielding tons of inbound requests for help making viral infographics as a service, and Anna’s own journey of working with some of the world’s top brands began.
