Visualmente - Haciendo Periodismo Visual desde 2005 en la Ciudad de la Furia - Vintage InfoPorn No.1 My conceit, when I started making infographics, was simple. I believed this was a *new way* of expressing and visualizing information, a thoroughly modern and zeitgeisty fusion of data and design. Oh you muppet David… These infographics were created by students of American African-American activist W.E.Dubois in 1902. They’re so modern looking! Then there’s ISOTYPE – the International System Of TYpographic Picture Education. There’s a gorgeous small-format book on Isotype by Neurath’s wife Marie and Robin Kinross that’s worth a look. The vibe of ISOTYPE, and its tight visual language, depended heavily on the pictographic work of German artist Gerd Arntz. Nice! Gerd Arntz: Graphic Designer (look inside) is gorgeous book, recently published by 010 Publishers, celebrating his work (Amazon UK | US). So infography has risen and fallen in history.
