Workshop on Infographics


Event Navigation - Primary

Introduction to Event

Visual presentation of news is an integral part of storytelling. In the world of information and data overload, it is extremely important to present information shortly, clearly and in a visually attractive way. Using powerful tools like charts, timelines, maps, scales and relationship diagrams, visual journalists make information clear and useful to the readers. From figurative representations to data driven visualisations, infographics fit into different editorial models and reader targets.

The main objective of this workshop is to help the editors and artists to think visually to conceptualise and execute graphics in their publications. The hands-on exercise will help them to go through the full cycle – from gathering information, research, analyzing the data, planning the graphic, sketching and to the actual execution. It will provide them a critical view of this discipline and the responsibility that comes with this powerful visual language.

More information on programme topics will be available soon.
