Videographic for BBCs 100 Women season launch
The BBC News website has today launched a new series titled ‘100 Women‘, bringing together a range of interviews, profiles, articles and other digital content to look at the world we live in through the eyes of women.
To mark the series they have released a videographic (or is it info-videographic? infographic video?) that explores some of the sobering and staggering statistics around women’s continued battle for parity, opportunity and safety in our modern society, ebbing and flowing between positive stories and then more depressing contexts. It is not possible to embed the video but here are some screengrabs and just click on the images to get to the video’s page.
Interestingly, looking purely at the design execution, for the purist, there are probably many flaws behind the representation of the data in this video and it has that infoposter-elements look and feel. However if the measure of effectiveness is about the clarity and impact of the information communicated, then I have certainly found it a success.
