Two-Day Workshop c/o Gestalten
The evolution of information stands at the intersection between the visualization and critical interpretation of data. With technology advancing at such rapid speed, and the way we consume and digest information constantly evolving, designers are challenged to embrace new editorial formats, platforms, and visual languages. An emergence of visual journalists and graphic editors are tackling this task and reinventing news on paper through a new form of journalistic expression. They are creating a narrative language where the content and visuals coexist and work cohesively together to deliver a result that is digestible, informative, and enhances the overall quality of the story. Editorial designers are developing new journalistic styles and conveying their ideas through visual storytelling where texts, headlines, photographs, and infographics are not considered as standalone elements but developed together to create a visual story that allows readers to process and digest this knowledge in an informative and elegant way. Infographics have become the key to changing culture and convention from the perspective of information consumption and IL—Intelligence in Lifestyle, the first magazine dedicated to cultural and social transformation in the 21st century, is one of the publications today that is pushing the envelope in the field of editorial design.
