In 2018 we rebuilt our online “arcade”, a collection of infographics originally designed for print. to make it more efficient and add features expounding on the process used to research and create certain pieces This collection of visual stories and data journalism will be available free-of-charge to a wide international audience far beyond the newspaper circulation. The stories offer a unique Hong Kong perspective on the news and contribute to the global conversation about China and the rest of the world.
Our city broadsheet began publishing full-page infographics in 2011, tackling a broad array of subjects from science to politics, history and fashion to technology and sport. We usually create discrete versions of our graphics for print and digital taking advantage of the unique qualities available to the different mediums.
Our full-page infographics for print are designed to complement the online pieces rather than simply duplicate information for a different format. While online stories have the space to dive deeper with more information using interaction and animation, the print versions offer succinct storytelling using strong visual elements and tight editing.
