This is Visual Journalism [125]

Infographic design showcase from newspapers and magazines

September 24, 2015

For many people, data visualization and infographics may still sound like something new, a product of the “Internet way of communicating”. Of course, our audience knows perfectly well that infographics, maps and charts in general have been around for many years, and newspapers and magazines have played – and still play – a crucial role in the development of information design, at a global scale.

Today’s opening picks symbolize that role, since they celebrate the anniversaries of two South American newspapers that are frequent presence in this weekly space. The Chilean daily La Tercera, that completed 65 years July, 30; and the Brazilian O Globo, that celebrated the 980th anniversary the day before, July 29.

Both publications marked the dates with special visual features, as showed by Saúl Castliho in his blog inconsolata here and here.
