This is Visual Journalism [1]

A brand new series celebrating infographic design

February 7, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

Visual Journalism it’s a much broader concept than just infographic production, but the balanced combination between text and images to convey a stor to a particular audience has in information design its greatest tool. And despite all the possibilities arising from interactive data visualization, the fundamentals of great information design are still mostly viewed in the pages of newspapers and magazines from all over the world.

We start today a new series of weekly posts dedicated to visual journalism, gathering examples from different publications. Some of these examples will be coming from non-English speaking countries, including Brazil, courtesy of Visual Loop Brazil.
