Infográficos e visualizações Vintage

Exemplos de visualização de informação que antecedem a explosão dos infográficos na Internet

fevereiro 1, 2013

O exemplo de comunicação visual que o Gerson Mora trouxe há algumas semanas atrás, datado de 1946, assim como os posts que a Susana Pereira tem trazido também na sua coluna, são evidências da importância que o estudo da visualização de informação – jornalística, científica e outras – tem tido ao longo dos anos.

Realmente, a infografia está longe de ser uma novidade, e a visualização de informação faz parte da nossa história desde há muito tempo.

No Visual Loop Internacional é puiblicada, às segundas-feiras, uma compilação de infográficos, mapas, diagramas e outras formas de visualização ‘vintage’, e muitas delas chegam a ser quase tão antigas quanto o Brasil!

Aqui fica uma seleção dessas pérolas visuais, para termos como referência e inspiração:
