The Functional Art: Design and Infographics

Written by Sean Mussenden. Posted in Sessions

Panel Description: Too many journalists still relate the word “design” to making pages and websites look prettier. As a consequence, they think that the main goal of an infographic is to be eye-catching, engaging, and fun. They argue that infographics are means to “simplify” data that only specialized professionals are capable of creating. This presentation will debunk all these myths and propose an alternative view of infographics and visualizations as means to make messages richer, deeper, and more effective.
