Piktochart is an easy-to-use tool that turns text or data-heavy content into engaging, high-quality visual stories. Headquartered in Penang, Malaysia, the former startup boasts itself as a ‘HOPEFUL’ bunch of creators who want to make storytelling — such as making a presentation for a sales pitch — a fun, quirky, and endearing experience for both the marketing team and clients alike.
With various eye-catching templates to choose from, you can also edit your output by adding text, changing fonts and colors, adding your icons, or moving elements around. You don’t need any prior coding or design experience to use Piktochart.
What sets us apart from other online graphic design tools? Quite a few things. For starting, with Piktochart, you get access to all templates from the get-go. No need to subscribe to a paid account to try out all the different templates. https://t.co/K8Ob5V97bp#graphicdesign pic.twitter.com/s1sfAV9bVA

Visual content formats
Piktochart makes robust charts and maps to translate your data into a visual story told through the medium of graphics and other appealing page elements. You can easily link your Excel, Google Docs, or HTML files and receive auto-generated visual outputs to grasp the attention of your audience. You can also add interactive maps to your presentation that highlight the focus of your brand or product.
You can create your visual content in any format such as reports, presentations, infographics, and even social media graphics. The output can be downloaded in PNG, PPT, and PDF formats. Piktochart has a public library of graphics, design components, and templates, and has three categories of pricing: free, pro, and custom.
If you follow the same presentation or report style for monthly or quarterly updates, it might make sense to save it as a template. You will be able to do it in Piktochart. With Pro and Enterprise, any workspace member may save their work as a template for other members to use. pic.twitter.com/Adu5b6z1if
