From International Journalism Festival in Perugia: Tips are from Gregor Aisch, visualization architect and interactive news developer. We’re delighted he could join us to lead the workshop: “Making Data Visualisations, A survival Guide.”
From Tom Johnson: With the visual storytelling guide, we let our hair down a bit more and not worry so much about the economy of information as we unravel story after story coupled with strong images and possibly video.
From Marketing Tech: The infographics industry is exploding and now we’re seeing some new tools to help. Currently, infographics agencies charge between $2k and $5k to research, design and promote a fantastic infographic. These tools will make development of your infographics a lot less costly, easier to design and publish, and some include reporting modules to see how well the infographics are distributed and promoted. Some of them are a bit young so you may have to deal with some bugginess, but they’re all very impressive.
