Data is universal. While the words used to describe the data may belong to one language or another, the trends they represent and the stories they tell can be understood by everyone. They are not limited by culture or language. Design is the same.
Good infographics can cross cultural barriers and remain relevant, wherever they are shown.
That is why we were excited when he heard that COURRIER JAPON, a Japanese magazine focusing on international news and culture, asked to reprint some of the graphics we did in collaboration with GOOD.
The subject matter of the chosen graphics varies, from how much Americans spend on their pets (Spending on Sparky), to where the world’s innovators live (Pioneers of the Millennial World), and fraud throughout the world (The Kingdom of Fraud).
Translation is handled by COURRIER themselves, and our graphics now appear monthly in their pages.
We are happy to be able educate people, highlight trends, and increase global understanding, even in a completely different language.
