Map O’ The Day #56 – Simple Narrative

From DTN, or designing the news, a group which specializes in visually editings the headlines or “representing news headlines by replacing the words with symbols, while maintaining the message”, hails MOTD #56.

The philosopher in me enjoys open-ended questions, and I feel that this approach to news headlines allows for a reader to draw conclusions based on their own experiences and opinions rather than have to digest those viewpoints of journalists.

Also, the use of imagery always boosts info. retention, so it’s quite possible that a viewer would strike up conversation about a news headline employing this approach as opposed to a linear text based message somewhere else in the paper.

Be sure to check out the images without the titles and you’ll realize they may not even be necessary to communicate the message!
