Thinking Infographically

A dazzling infographic from “Intelligence In Lifestyle.”
The masthead is in the form of an infographic.

We’re moving deeper into an era in journalism that will demand, what Francesco Franchi, the art director of Intelligence In Lifestyle (a style supplement of one of Italy’s top financial dailies, Il Sole) calls “infographic thinking,” the ability to weave narratives into intelligent visuals.

Well-made infographics, no doubt, are pretty, but they go beyond prettiness, he says. They’re informative, and encourage a different sort of reading experience, which in turn, fosters critical thinking.
