In September 2014, Al Jazeera launched AJ+, a digital project that focuses on disseminating content through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Medium. To share interactive content without having to rely on a website, we developed a new kind of information design product, known as Infogifs, to reenact the interactivity of web-based data projects in the form of simple animated GIFs. These animated infographics are designed with a mobile-first mindset.
AJ+’s Infogifs are indexed and searchable on platforms such as Facebook messenger, Twitter, and Slack. More Infogifs can be viewed on AJ+’s GIPHY channel.
