Discuss infographics; learn how Graphic News have developed the New York Times Ai2HTML method to produce both mobile-friendly responsive graphics and print graphics in Adobe Illustrator using conventional design techniques; discover how Mobirise, software promoted as a website-builder and available for Euro 180 outright (yes really!), can be used for mobile storytelling.
