How to make an info graphic
Info graphics can help the reader and viewer to understand information better. They show numbers and statistics in a graphic way. Info graphics make (news)papers and TV bulletins more interesting and informative.
That is why IMCK started, in cooperation with Irex, a 8 day workshop in Irbil on info graphics. On May 24 Dutch trainer Karin Timmerman opened the workshop for 13 Kurdish designers and journalists, who are very 'computer literate'. She works with them on Adobe Illustrator. Participants come from newspapers, sites and TV stations all over Iraqi Kurdistan. The training takes place at the computer room of Irex in Irbil.
Timmerman is working as a graphic designer at the Dutch daily Trouw. Her co-trainer/translator is Kurdish journalist Ako Muhamed.
