Over at Nightingale, Jason Forrest tells the story of how striking images and dataviz were key to selling the Roosevelt’s New Deal to a US population that’s always been sceptical of big government. The point is that there’s a strong analogy with today, as drastic measures are going to be needed to pull us out of the economic hell hole and broken-down social cohesion we’re in. Plus, it contains a potted history of the 1920s International System of Typographic Picture Education, in which much of today’s visualisation best practice has its roots. Read Jason’s article here.
