Freelance infographic designer [Lulu Pinney](http://lulupinney.co.uk/) has kindly designed a wonderful poster which illustrates some of the topics covered in the [Data Journalism Handbook](http://datajournalismhandbook.org/), a free, open source reference book which shows how journalists can use data to improve the news.
She uses a [process diagram](http://jonathangray.org/2011/12/07/picturing-processes/) to represent different aspects of the data journalist’s workflow – from getting data to delivering it to their readers in stories, visualisations and apps. The poster will be presented at the [Information Design Conference 2012](http://www.amiando.com/idc2012.html) in London. The design is based on [Kate Hudson’s](http://katehudsondesign.com/) illustrations for the book.
The first edition of the book is nearly completed, ready for its launch towards the end of April at the [International Journalism Festival](http://www.journalismfestival.com/) in Perugia. If you want to be notified when the book is released, you can [sign up on the website](http://datajournalismhandbook.org/).
