This is a guest post by Tiago Veloso, the founder of Visual Loop, a collaborative digital environment for everything related to information design and data visualization. He lives in Brazil, and you can connect with him online on Tumblr, Twitter and LinkedIn.
As another year comes to an end, there’s still time to look back and remember some of the content published on Visual Loop, this time during the month of November.
In the data viz world, we had several interactive projects from major news outlets about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the terrible disaster in the Philippines, the shooting at LAX’s terminal 3, the U.S. Mayoral elections, a mind blowing recap of the NSA Files scandal by The Guardian, just to mention a few topics.
It was also the month that we met the winners of the 2013 Kantar Information Is Beautiful Awards, a competition that has established itself as one of the most important of the year.
All in all, November 2013 was another epic month, and here’s the month’s Best of Visual Loop:
