« Visual Data» column is a data visualization weekly published within «La Lettura» the cultural supplement of the Italian newspaper «Corriere Della Sera». Federica Fragapane — Information and Visual Designer — periodically designs the data visualizations. Her design process is characterized by a constant research for meaningful subjects to be visualized and new visual experimentations. Every visualization is the result of a multistep design process: research of topic and data, data analysis, design of the visual model and stylistic finishing.
Federica Fragapane, Visual and Information Designer, collaborates with the Italian newspaper «Il Corriere della Sera» designing a part of the data visualizations weekly published within the cultural supplement «La Lettura».
The visualizations deal with subjects that are carefully chosen in order to create meaningful storytelling pieces. The aim of the design process is to engage the reader with interesting contents and visually appealing aesthetics, generating a connection between designer and reader that passes through shapes, colors and lines. Federica Fragapane works across different topics: literature, music, society and current and urgent issues. For every topic, a specific visual model is designed, in a constant balance between aesthetics and clearness.
Every piece tells a unique story: the contents are presented in layers of information, so as to allow the reader to choose how to explore the visualization and the deepness of the analysis. The project is characterized by a constant research for new aesthetics and forms, created by a stream of dialogue between the contents and the visual elements, combined to the designer's will to create a different visualization every time, but with the same stylistic matrix.
Some of the visualizations have been designed in collaboration with Francesco Majno, Information Designer.
