Visualjournalism.com is back!!
Friends of infographics out there – behold! the Visualjournalism.com website is up and running again. The site is run by Denmark's best info graphic artist, Gert K. Nielsen, former head of infographics at Ekstra Bladet and former web editor at 24timer. The first incarnation of Visualjournalism.com – loaded with infographics material and documentation – suffered from a hacker attack a few years ago, but has reopened today, and Gert is ready to fight the battle for better infographics in news media once again.
It's even easier than anywhere else to sign up as a member – just click the "Connect with Facebook" button on the site to become a member, using your Facebook login information. So, whenever you're logged in to Facebook (and who isn't, these days, all the time?) you're logged in at Visualjournalism.com. And it's totally safe and secure.
Enough talk – check it out and sign up at Visualjournalism.com. As Gert writes on the opening page: »The success of this site will be measured by the value it gives to the infographics community. Whether your background is in journalism, arts or the academic world, you should soon be able to find something that interests you.«
