Every now and then, we revisit the work of talented information designers that were already presented to you in our Portfolio of the Week section. It’s a way of checking out what they’ve been up to since that initial presentation, what projects they’ve been involved and, of course, show off some new infographics published recently.
Today, we’ll take a look at the recent work of a good friend of ours, Nigel Hawtin, who’s been a great supporter of Visual Loop since the early beginning. Nigel is very well-known inside the data visualization and infographic communities, and we featured him back in 2012 – and his infographics are regularly present on our This is Visual Journalism weekly column. Working as the Graphics Editor at New Scientist magazine and Newscientist.com for the past 15 years, he is the responsible for overall graphical content, bridging (and pushing) the boundaries between scientific accuracy and visually appealing information graphics.
He shared some thoughts with us, about his recent work:
“The world of science and technology graphics always has something new to offer. Last year was no different for me, whether it was graphics for New Scientist or freelance clients.
The subject matter – as always – allows me to try different ways of portraying the relevant information or theory, whether it is something tangible or highly theoretical. My styles range from quite realistic portrayals such as what the Temples of Sirius would have looked like and isometric landscapes showing infrastructure services, to abstract concepts like wormholes, the map-like squares of the WikiWorld graphic or the flowchart-like timeline of how particle physics and cosmology are interlinked.”
