Description - Visual Storytelling by Liu Yikun

This book introduces the developmental history and characteristics of data journalism, describing its classification and the features of journalism published by world-renowned media. How do data journalism designers overcome information overload in today's fast-paced environment, and find simple and compelling methods to filter and convey news content? One of the most effective ways is to use dynamic infographics and data visualisations. The use of powerful graphics and illustrations will capture the viewer's attention and interest, and by burying boring data creatively, strong graphics will provide a clever and compelling visual story that's driven by accessible and clear communication.
