Infographic Thinking

Francesco Franchi

About this video


With technology advancing at such a rapid speed, and the way we consume and digest information constantly evolving, designers are challenged to embrace new editorial formats, platforms and visual languages. A new breed of visual journalists and graphic editors are creating a narrative language where the content and visuals work cohesively to deliver a result that enhances the overall quality of stories. Francesco explains how to convey your ideas through visual storytelling where texts, headlines, photographs and infographics are not stand-alone elements but create knowledge that readers can digest elegantly and eff ortlessly.
