This is Visual Journalism [150]

Visual journalism at its best, from graphic desks around the world

September 1, 2016

Another week, another overwhelming selection of printed infographics. But before we share these 30+ exquisite pieces of visual journalism, it’s time to give a proper shout-out to a new “blog on the block”. We’re talking about John Grimwade‘s Infographic for the People, a must-read for all of you interested in the subject. That means students, educators, practitioners, experts, and so on. Promptly added to our list of best data visualization blogs.

John, who’s currently teaching at VisCom, Ohio University, has been contributing graphics director for the sports (soccer-centered) magazine Eight by Eight for a while now, and he just shared a two-part post (1, 2)with a selection of infographics from the pages of by this award-winning publication.

Our round up kicks-off with a couplee of those infographics, followed by the latest additions to our gallery and other projects that caught our attention in these past few days. And please, do yourself a favor and subscribe to Infographic for the People‘s feed!
