Workshop in Chennai, India

I’ll be teaching an information graphics workshop in Chennai, India, on January 22 and 23. It will be a hands-on event for designers, editors, and anyone interested in information design and data visualization. The workshop is organized by WAN-IFRA, the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers. This is our first venture in India, a vibrant market where dailies (especially the popular vernacular press in Hindi, Malayalam, Marathi and Telugu) are growing strongly, proving the newspaper crisis is far from universal. The Times of India, an English language newspaper, has a circulation of over 3.3 million copies daily. However, the transition to digital is being quite slow, and even more so in the case of infographics. I’m curious to see the situation first-hand. I’ll report back!
