Show Progress with Stair and Waterfall Graphics

Get My Graphic has new editable stair and waterfall graphics available for download.

Stair Graphics
Stair graphics show steps in a process. Use this graphic type as a metaphor for progress.

When combined with a world map, a stair graphic can demonstrate starting or ending points for worldwide distribution or corporate expansion. Animate the map so the countries are highlighted when a specific step is discussed.


Use icons to add visual meaning to each step such as a pointing finger for selection, laptop for searching, satellite for communications, puzzle piece for an item in a process, world for global expansion, and handshake for partnership. Of course, how you define the icons is dependent on the meanings your audience will associate with them.


Waterfall Diagram
Waterfall Diagrams show a linear progression of steps in a process. Use icons or photos to add visual explanations to each step and help your audience better remember your content.
