Designers + Geeks: The Future of Infographics
Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Designers + Geeks features talks from experts on design, technology, startups, and all manner of geekery. If you want to be the first to hear about new Designers + Geeks events, sign up for the newsletter.
Infographics are timeless, but practitioners must evolve to remain effective and combat the oversaturated media landscape. This presentation will examine the continued innovation in the field, identifying applications in which information visualization can create the appeal and soundness necessary to deliver a powerful message.
Jason Lankow is CEO and cofounder of Column Five, a creative agency in Newport Beach, California, specializing in infographic design and social public relations. He co-authored the book “Infographics - The Power of Visual Storytelling” (Wiley 2012), and lectures frequently on the subject of infographics.
