This is Visual Journalism [26]

A selection of recent examples of the 'True Infographic Craft'

August 1, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Every six months, Andy Kirk publishes on Visualising Data¬†a list with the major developments in the field of data visualization. It’s an amazing effort, to reduce to such a short list all the things that happen around the world (as we see every week on our Data Viz news round-up), but Andy always manages to pinpoint those projects or breakthroughs that really stand out.

In this edition, that ranges from January to June 2013, one of the developments mentioned was ‘True Infographic Craft‘, in which Andy presents the work of Richard Johnson, Assistant Managing Editor for Graphics & Illustration at Canada‚Äôs The National Post, and Adolfo Arranz, Senior infographic artist and illustrator at South China Morning Post (featured on one of our previous Portfolios of the Week).

If you’ve been following this weekly column, you know that both these visual journalists are a regular presence, and today’s This is Visual Journalism opens (once more) with one of Adolfo’s most recent works:
