This is Visual Journalism [33]

Infographic inspiration from all over the world

September 19, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

In a huge (like US$ 800 million-huge) engineering effort, the Costa Concordia cruise ship was pulled completely upright early Tuesday, in Italy. The ship capsized in January 2012, killing 32 people, and this complex operation took approximately 19 hours, using cables and metal boxes filled with water to roll the ship onto a platform.

Newsrooms across the world made infographics about the operation, and our weekly round-up starts with great examples of visual journalism about the Costa Concordia’s tragic journey.

But before we move on to that, we’d like to invite you to check out our latest Portfolio of the Week, that belongs to Nicolas Ramallo, a telented infographic designer from Venezuela (and fellow blogger with his Haga clic para continuar, in Spanish), as well as to revisit Mário Malhão’s most recent infographic works for the Portuguese publication Diário Económico.

Now, this week’s infographics:
