Behind the Scenes of GOOD Magazine’s Infographics
GOOD Magazine‘s Transparency section, the folks who make the swanky infographics we regularly admire, were recently interviewed by The Bygone Bureau. The infographics are known for taking staggering and complex chunks of statistical data and converting them into digestible and often beautiful visual representations.
GOOD Magazine brings in different designers to work on the graphics and tackle issues from immigration to fuel efficiency, often putting a new perspective on a current predicament. Phil Lubliner, a Brooklyn-based designer, discussed his experience working on a Transparency graphic:
“We’ve always admired the way other designers had solved the challenges the Transparencies presented,” Lubliner said. “There’s something exciting about seeing an infographic that not only communicates the information, but does so in a way that engages the readers by adding more than just graphs and charts to the conversation.”
…“The goal is to not just present the information, but do it in a way that also adds some editorial point of view,”
… It comes down to getting the viewer to look at social issues in a different light, and that begins with how we visualize the information.”
