This is Visual Journalism [29]

Breaking news graphics and visual reports to inspire

August 22, 2013

With the usual ‘bombardment’ of sports-related infographics in this week’s selection – something we’ll keep seeing, for sure, in the weeks to come – , a couple of “out-of-this-planet” works really caught our attention. Both of these works explain NASA’s proposed mission to retrieve an asteroid and bring it to a lunar orbit, and the quality of the visual approaches taken by Charles Apple, for the Orange County Register and by Alberto Cuadra, for The Washington Post are far from being a surprise for those who’ve been following the field of infographic design for the past years.

These works open today’s selection of recent examples of visual journalism, which we hope you’ll appreciate as much as we do:
