With the view to provide extra training opportunities to the post-graduate students of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of AUTh,
we have planned a series of workshops aiming to enhance students skills and competence in digital media, communication and journalism. Beginning in December, the first two-day workshop “Little Stories for Big Events” is dedicated to infographics.
Workshop Description: From the cave paintings in France to today’s visualized news using infographics, the interpretation remains the same. Panos Konstantopoulos and Stella Tsiarvoula present -with a brief historical review- iconic and historical infographics, the basic design tools and analyze how an infographic is tailor-made designed for the medium that will publish it. The last part of the presentation will focus on an assignment. Participants will create their own infographic working on real, current news.
