In infographics and data visualization informational rigor is fundamental. But why not also surprise our readers and audiences? The participants of “Show, Don’t Tell! 28”, held from 23 to 25 March 2020, will discover how Fernando G. Baptista and Mónica Serrano create their work at National Geographic as they share their techniques, from genesis to final animation. Led by Mónica and Fernando and working in teams, workshop participants will explore how to select information, write a script, draw the storyboard, construct scale models and, using Stop Motion and After Effects, generate an animated infographic.
Every year, preceding the Infographics World Conference it takes place the professional workshop “Show Don’t Tell!”. The workshop, conducted in English, runs for three days from Monday to Wednesday and normally has from 20 to 25 participants. The aim of the sessions is to enhance the conceptualization of infographics, their planning and the reporting, as well as fostering teamwork, above the final product itself. The participants worked in teams on the projects supervised by the instructors and presented their work during the Summit. From March 23 to 25, 2020.
