Print v online

The print version

The online version

These two graphics show how a simple conversion of an online graphic to print, or vice versa, is all that’s needed to play to the strengths of the medium in question. This work is by the New York Time’s Amanda Cox back in July 2009.

I’m posting this because – not only is it another very good graphic – but I keep seeing print graphics which are uploaded onto websites with no further thought to the fact that information on screens and on paper is consumed in different ways and something designed for one doesn’t necessarily work on the other. Also blogged about here.
