Crossplatform content and journalism week 4 Crossplatform content and journalism week 4 Presentation Transcript

  • Crossplatform Journalism Week Six
  • Pictures have always been powerful
  • Pictures tell a story
  • Images are neutral, the reaction isn’t
  • A picture is worth 1000 words
  • The evolution of the picture
  • Graphics beyond the single image
  • Infographics
  • But the picture has... evolved?
  • Evolution or regression?
  • The Infographic http://francis-moran.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/infographic_on_infographics.jpg
  • The Infographic http://bit.ly/YsnsV7
  • Wikipedia can provide material http://bit.ly/13Ctx6f
  • Wikipedia as a source of info http://bit.ly/13CtEii
  • Simple facts via Wikipedia
  • Infographic http://bit.ly/YSRzEG
  • Infographic close up
  • Remember • Keep it simple – It’s too easy to complicate diagrams – Provide links to other material and references – Know what to omit – One fact to one image – Consider mobile

  • Tasks for the week • Take one story you’ve done in the past – What are the traditional visuals that would work with it? – Can it work as an infographic? What would you put in? What would you leave out? – Can it work as a single image or is there a single image you could LOLcat to entice readers to the full story?
