Welcome to the Nordic Journalist Centre and Regional Press Institute seminar on infographics for the web. Also, welcome to this website where you will find the programme, links for the tools we will work with, and links to training resources.
Ole Rode Jensen
We have chosen quite a bouquet of the most relevant and coolest tools for you when you’re creating content for online and mobile platforms.
One thing though: We constantly look for new tools and new ways to do infographics so the programme can change. Please check this website for updates.
Important: You don’t have to be a graphics person to join this seminar. All the tools are template-based and easy to work with. Then again, having a minimum of visual understanding will not harm you..
Visualizations, infographics, and multimedia are really increasing these days. Great infographics give your story added value or sometimes even tell the story better than tons and tons of words.
BYO (Bring Your Own): Bring your own laptop for the seminar. All the tools are online. You’ll need to register for quite a few accounts, but they are all free.
For two days, we’ll go through some great tools for infographics. I’ll look forward to seeing you all in Petrozavodsk.
