Rio 2016: 50 inspiring print infographics

From graphic desks across the globe, all the details about this year's Olympics.

August 18, 2016

The greatest sport event in the world is well underway, and after sharing with you some of the best interactive features about Rio 2016 – more to come – , it’s time to look at the print infographics, published in newspapers and magazines across the globe.

It’s always exciting to set up these types of posts, because in an event such as Olympics, this means gazing at multiple spreads posters and long series of infographics depicting each sport, among other unusual editorial extravaganzas, in addition to the traditional breakdown of venues, athletes and events.

We divided this huge round up in two parts, with the first one being dedicated solely to the works submitted to our gallery, and the second comprised of infographics featured throughout the Internet, either in designers’ portfolios, social networks or blogs.

Hope you enjoy it!
