Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, and are easy to understand.

Infographics are sources of interesting information, when you are in need of some. Reading boring, long, colorless articles isn’t so attractive and interesting than reading and viewing facts and numbers in an illustrated way. Not only an illustrated way, but a very creative, attractive and super-appealing way.

Mixed Skillsets Produce Great Infographics

Mixed Skillsets Produce Great Infographics | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Accurat is a design agency and consultancy based in Milan, Italy, transforming data into meaningful stories, and developing multimedia narratives and interactive applications.

 

Our studio doesn’t have a formal information visualization education background. The four associates have majors in completely different fields: Architecture, Sociology, Design and Economics.

This is a strange skill composition for a design studio, but indeed it’s what brings novelty in Accurat’s body of work.

When working on information visualization, this multifaceted background clearly emerges, leading to the design of unorthodox visual metaphors, where our focus is on the data analysis, theories and storytelling side.

 

In practice, this translates into a very straightforward process in the design of the visualizations: instead of starting with a selection of the most proper metaphor among widely used models of graphs, charts and tables, the visual starts with the story we want to tell, without any constriction from a chosen format. This way, it’s way easier to break rules, merge ideas together and come up with naive but powerful and new visual schemes...

 

Read the complete article for a detailed and comprehensive look at this unique approach to vizualization, storytelling and the process it takes to achieve successful and creative results, as explained with project examples and case studies.

Visual Storytelling: New Language for the Information Age

Visual Storytelling: New Language for the Information Age | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
We now live in a world where information is potentially unlimited. Information is cheap, but meaning is expensive.

Over the past several years, our quest to extract meaning from information has taken us more and more towards the realm of visual storytelling — we’ve used data visualization to reveal hidden patterns about the world, employed animation in engaging kids with important issues, and let infographics distill human emotion. In fact, our very brains are wired for the visual over the textual by way of the pictorial superiority effect.
