Designing News in the issue 219 of étapes.
Jonathan Corum, the graphics editor for Science at the New York Times, designs print and interactive graphics with a decisive focus on clarity, simplicity, and elegance, translating detailed data into something widely understood.
Last fall, we hosted a two-day workshop with this true master where we learned more about the understated fundamentals of information design. In this video, Corum explains how he integrates “art and annotation” to create a unified visual story and tell us how the NYT developed a serious comic to answer the question: “What is the Higgs?”
For greater insight into Corum’s work, pick up a copy of A Life in Illustration, in which he is extensively profiled, as well as our books on information design including Data Flow 2, and Visual Storytelling.
