Visuals, data and storytelling... isn't that becoming a natural combination? This article shows students' work, and, more importantly, the process they went through to create these visual stories.

 

Note how storyboarding (as used in creating movies) is used in the process, as well as both visual metaphors and extremely evocative photography—nothing beats realistic images with human beings for impact.

 

Kudos to the students, and thanks for the eye-opening view behind the scenes to inspire us to create visual stories out of data.

My favorite is A Librarian's worth:
This great infographic, created by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, gives a lot of new light on the role of libraries and librarians, as it changes a reference point totally. What would we do without librarians? There is only one answer to this question: nothing.

Carey Leahy's curator insight, August 13, 2013 10:29 PM

beyond the BER - we need the Librarian to support the best use of the libraries.

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics | Creating Infographics | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.

 

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles.
