Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve been reading lately…
- Colin Gourlay: Kenny Fennell is a guy that writes his economics essays in ‘Dr Seuss’
- Ben Spraggon: How can we change people’s relationship with text to encourage exploration, to make new discoveries and to question the author’s premise?
- Lucy Fahey: I really like how this New Yorker animation visualises the narrative in an abstracted way, filling in the gaps of the narration.
- Simon Elvery: Making the invisible visible is a rich vein to mine for stories. Visualising the changing historical shape of riversis one fascinating way to do this. Here’s a great execution of the idea using modern technologies and tools to create a beautiful data-derived visualisation of the Oregon river.
- Tim Leslie: This Huffington Post piece about witchcraft in PNG is a good, intense story told well both through text and design.
- Matt Liddy: Quartz made an awesome, scarily huge guide to bad data for journalists.
