Head of the design centre at Sputnik News Agency and Radio, Anton Stepanov, delivered a well-received lecture on Saturday 17th September as part of Sputnik's working partnership with the London Design Biennale.

LONDON (Sputnik) — Stepanov spoke about the importance of visualisation and analysis during construction projects and during periods of social change, using examples from Russian history to support his case.

The world-renowned design expert also discussed the return to infographics in the design industry and their importance in presenting information in a clear, simple, and easily understandable way, drawing on examples from the ongoing international public opinion project – Sputnik.Polls.

"The London Design Biennale is an excellent event and it is a pleasure to represent the Sputnik design centre at it. The Sputnik design centre is at the cutting-edge of modern design and our various projects and dedication to professionalism keep us there. Just one example is our contribution to the Sputnik.Polls project which sees us provide engaging and useful infographics to support the data," Anton Stepanov, head of the Sputnik design centre, said.
