Two of our digital works published at nacion.com wins an Award Of Excellence in the 2015 edition of the contest. The first one is the project in celebration of the “75th anniversary of the National Symphonic Orchestra” the design and development of this projects set a starting point to the trends of our unit.

The second project awarded this February in Washington D.C. was the “Birth of a Century“, I was invited to work in this project for the unit of Data from La Nación, and I have the fortune of the collaboration of the development unit as the artist Augusto Ramírez.

I have to say that I’m very very happy to get this awards of the Society for News Design in his digital contest, but this is a team work, and I must say thanks to my partners in the infographics unit, the Data Team of LN, the Development area, my Editors, and many many people who supports me last year.

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.

August of Dataviz

caratula

I have been teaching the course of information design for over two years now, and as I always say, my greatest satisfaction is to take a tour of the good things that these boys and girls have achieved with their projects change each cycle.

For this opportunity, my students worked on three projects, the first was the creation of pieces focusing on processes, for this I left them some issues to assist in the process and make more effective taking a decision, the second project was the creation of an analysis of literary works, in this case the intention was that from some books that previously chose to give them a pdf of these works, the students seek ways to visualize related to such works topics, the latest project was a a little free theme, with this the idea was to make a graphic interpretation of a classic tale, fairy tales that end up being interpreted with certain rules of any visual form.
