Quick graphics for social networks

Last year (2015) I start many new projects, some of them are still progress, but one of these are the quick graphics for social media.

At the unit of infographics and datavisualization, we spend many time in daily production and in special huge projects, I believe that we have enough time and muscle to produce frequently these small graphics,  every single infographic must have a print version, desktop digital versión, mobile version but also, i like to choose some of these to develop a social media version, sometimes a gif, or an image or even a short video with a compact version of the main graphic.

So, here is some of my favorites picks:

The spooky asteroid:

In october 31, an asteroid pass near the earth (near in space terms), this asteroid was renamed “the spooky asteroid” and take the attention of the world by the time of his visit, so it was a nice opportunity for a quick graphic for social media:

The MAVEN findings:

The NASA made the announcement of the Maven mission findings about what happened with the atmosphere and magnetic fields of the red planet. We are awaiting the press release with a stock of pieces to develop soon as we can a simply animation for social media:

Hope in this 2016 have many more of these chances to create more quick graphics for social media, these are a great way to engage readers with content made exclusively for consumption on social networks.

A few days ago we released an special about the births of a century in Costa Rica, I had the chance to produce this motion for. It’s nice to get raw data and transform it in to visuals, alternative ways to see the past or future of a population, if you like to take a look in to the full site here http://bit.ly/1kpN45p you may use google chrome for translation from spanish 🙂

In the last weeks I’ been integrating the WebGL Technology to take advantage of the great skills of my partners of the infographics department here at nacion.com Daniel Solano and Edgar Jiménez both of them great artist´s, they works on Cinema 4D to produce print graphics for the regular editions of the news corporation, that kind of work it’s simply awesome and it’s a shame don’t use all his digital potential.
