The image is more than an idea. It is a vortex or cluster of fused ideas and is endowed with energy.” — Ezra Pound
We believe that stories are essential in creating infographics.
This is why we strive so passionately to transform boring data into compelling and memorable picture stories. Empowering people to tell visual stories from data lies at the core of our mission.
A life without stories would be no life at all.
It is through storytelling that we live our lives, communicate and make sense of the world. Stories are the blood vessels of our thoughts, emotions and imagination. And what makes stories even more awesome is that they are shareable. Through stories we are able to share our experience and knowledge, and connect with one another. They can motivate, inspire and drive change. In an increasingly digital world, our culture has become driven by information overload, but our senses still yearn to be stimulated. This has lead to visual storytelling being one of the most powerful forms of communication in times of digital excess.
We want to know your story, and not only through infographics.
We would love to see those special, emotional and unusual moments you experience every day and we would like you to share them with us. What we are looking for are photos that capture the fleeting moment and encapsulate the stories enveloping it. You don’t have a professional camera? No worries, you don’t need it to take an image that tells a story. We do this more and more often with our smart phones or tablets every day. And remember, you don’t want your photo to just tell a thousand words. You want it to tell a story.
We are looking for photos that capture your story; would that be Dave, your morning barista who prepares the perfect cup of spiced latte, or Abraham, your cat who follows you to work each day, we want to see them! We have also prepared great prizes for the best storytellers!! The most powerful and compelling story wins an iPad and a 1-year PRO subscription. We will also select 5 runner ups who will get 6 months of Pro subscription each.
