THE ‘HOW’ OF THE CRISIS IN A FULL-PAGE COMIC

Files under General | Sep 22nd

Michael Bird, deputy managing editor for presentation and editing at Toronto’s The Globe and Mail, sent me this interesting page today from the weekend edition of the Canadian paper:

It was, he says, the result of a collaborative effort headed by our graphics editor Tonia Cowan and business reporter Boyd Erman, supported and nurtured by assignment, production and design editors.

Well done!

Have you seen any other creative ways of explaining the crisis?

Send me pages like this.

I am sure that the infographics departments at some newspapers have done excellent explanatory journalism.

Please, send them to me at giner@innovation-mediaconsulting.com
