Graphic News is 20 years old!

Graphic News is 20 years old and to celebrate it, they organised an international event for their subscribers and friends. Graphic News in Motion (London) was an intense one-day workshop which brought together speakers with a wide range of expertise about infographics for multiple platforms. The agenda also included a networking session intended to be a way of introducing participants to each other. Sheila Pontis was part of this sort of ‘speed dating’ session, presenting some of the projects we are working on.

So far today has been an interesting day, with lots of different approaches to information graphics, lots of fun, and a relax environment! The last part of the evening is still to come… we are looking forward to it!

A big thank you to the Graphic News team, and Prof. Michael Stoll.

This week our article “What is Information Design” (written by Sheila Pontis) has been published in the online journal Foroalfa. Although this article is written in Spanish, it is a detailed and clear definition of the main objectives of the information design discipline.
