Interactive Inspiration [27]

All about the Pope's election and much more, visualized

March 15, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

The election of the Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church was, of course, the top news of the week. Online news portals from all over the world created interactive timelines and graphics about Pope Francis, and during the next weeks we’ll probably see a few more making their way in to the Internet..

Our selection, as always, goes way beyond the coverage of current events, with lots of interactive visualizations from independent designers and companies. And, starting today, we’ll be also including several works published in Brazil and Portugal, courtesy of Visual Loop Brasil.
