Technology takes over the opening highlights of this week’s Interactive Inspiration, in a period of the year where Sports traditionally rule, in terms of infographic production. We saw that yesterday, with print infographics, and you’ll also see it today, including a couple of projects about the 2015 Champions League.
But let’s start with the two highlights that we think deserve a special attention:
What is Code | Businessweek
Without question, the greatest interactive feature of the week (month, year?…) goes to Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s “What is Code“, signed by Paul Ford. The integration of the 30.000-plus words text with the animated graphics and “video-explainers” is well-balanced, creating an overall online experience that we recommend you to explore in all its length.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs | National Geographic
First aired Jun 1, the episode of National Geographic’s mini-series American Genius about Steve Jobs and Bill Gates must be one of the most interesting ones to watch. And with this interactive timeline, created to promote the documentary, you can get a glance of the most important moments in both Jobs and Gates’ careers.
And now, all the other interactive graphics of the week:

2015 Champion’s League | Florian Ramseger
