This is Visual Journalism [114]

Information design from print editions of newspapers and magazines

June 4, 2015

This week, the world of visual journalism was in mourning due to the sudden death of Seth Hamblin, deputy global head of visuals at The Wall Street Journal, at the age of 46. According to the newspaper, he “collapsed while running a 5K race in Morristown, N.J.”. He joined the WSJ’s newsroom back in 2007, and “expanded the use of information graphics and interactive multimedia at the Journal and advanced visual storytelling at a time when news outlets accustomed to print are continually adapting to an increasingly digital, and mobile, readership.”

Seth had a portfolio website with work done by the teams that he directed at The Wall Street Journal, and a blog on which he shared more graphics and several tips for journalists and designers – like Charles Apple said, all deserving of becoming a book. So, we open today’s “This is Visual Journalism” with a couple of those graphics, as a small token of respect, followed by the usual weekly round up of infographics from newsrooms across the globe:
