Information is beautiful (EN)

In an age of high-speed living, big data, and info overload, visualized information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world. The use of infographics, data visualization and information design is a rising trend across many disciplines: science, design, journalism and web. At the same time, daily exposure to the web is creating a information design-literate population who demand their information in visual form.

Its powerful usefulness in all kinds of media, its rules and dynamics, how it combines with story-telling and interactivity. And he will unveil some of the interesting, unexpected and sometimes magical things that happen when you visualise data, knowledge and ideas.
