This is Visual Journalism [120]

Infographics about the Pluto Flyby, the escape of Chapo Guzmán and much more

July 16, 2015

Without surprise, two very different events that took place this week dominate this compilation of print infographics from newspapers and magazines. The first, and most significant one, was the “Pluto FlyBy”, by NASA’s New Horizons probe, revealing new exciting details of Pluto and its moons. Follow NASA’s mission coverage to know more about this important milestone in space exploration history.

The second event that gained a lot of attention, especially in Latin American nations, was the escape of the world’s most notorious drug lord, Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán, from a maximum security Mexican prison. On this matter, besides the works we are bringing here, we’d also like to point out an article by infographic designer Jorge Luis Cortés, in which he alerts to this ongoing “trend of various media that prioritizes visual sensationalism over journalistic rigor”. It is in Spanish, but here’s the Google Translate link. An old problem in many newsrooms, unfortunately still very much present in these days.

Once again, our good friend Saul Castilho, over at Inconsolata, is responsible for collecting many of the works presented in today’s round up. So don’t forget to check out his website.
