When it comes to breaking News and current affairs, it is generally felt that there is not much room for creativity. After all, you do not see Reuters, CNN or the BBC using metaphors, idioms or abstract art, do you?
What if, I told you, it indeed is possible to combine creative expression with news coverage? Allow us to introduce you to Icons Times, which is, quite possibly, the internet’s first ever signage information website!
Icons Times reports breaking news and the latest happenings from around the world. However, instead of using boring text and grim photography, it focuses on informative graphics and icons. For instance, check out how Icons Times covered the Russian meteorite incident: the text comes from The Wall Street Journal, but the graphic on display — ah… sheer awesomeness!
