Helpful tips for complex mind mapping

  • Start with finding the perfect mind map structure

    Browse all the mind map examples in VistaCreate and choose the one you need – a graph chart, step-by-step format, checklist, etc. Each template serves a particular purpose and has a specific layout and set of elements. For example, if you’re planning a business strategy, choose a template with a step-by-step structure that includes boxes for each step, connecting arrows, and numbers. You can easily add your text and graphics in the VistaCreate mind map maker without breaking the structure.

  • Build around your central idea

    Define this project’s central concept or main phrase and focus your design on it. Write it in a large bold font and place it on top or in the center of your mind map. The key here is to stick to your central idea and never lose sight of it as you add more and more elements to the design. Whenever you add text, objects, or images to a layout, check to see if they complement the main idea. To make your main concept stand out, use VistaCreate’s text effects or add a mask to the background.

  • Make complex concepts look simple

    You can explain any complex idea with the proper graph or chart. We recommend using multiple levels and branches for complicated topics. Keep hierarchy in mind and use various design tools to structure complex ideas on your mind map. For example, choose different colors for topics and subtopics. Or, write related ideas in the same font and place them over the same colored background. Thus will help your team and stakeholders grasp complex ideas. VistaCreate mind map maker features lots of boxes, frames, and arrows to help you with intricate mind mapping.

  • Prioritize readability

    When filling your mind maps with text, learn to balance creative thinking and readability. Don’t overload your design with big text blocks. Stay concise and make every thought clear in a short sentence or phrase. Also, don’t get carried away with decorative fonts, as they can affect readability. We recommend choosing up to 2-3 simple complementary fonts for one map. And if you want to diversify them, use the same fonts but experiment with size and formatting.


  • I can’t find a suitable template among VistaCreate’s mind map examples. Can I create mind maps from scratch?

Our mind map creator features lots of stock pictures, videos, and vectors for you to choose from. Upload your own files for personalized designs and use VistaCreate’s tools and features to edit them.
