Recently years, significant media alterations concern how the practices of visual journalism are varied. Media facilitation enables social sharing and diversity when considering the visual information structure in online newspapers, which makes the visual practitioners work complex. It is to illuminate the visual transmediation that Making the Voice was written.
The publication owes its inspiration about design professionalism in news websites. The work opens up discussion on visual transmediation and shares a curiosity about in-house visual journalists’ work and organizational cultures. It is featured for the four published articles to present the visual information structure as visual transmeditation product and to outline the visual practitioners’ daily routines and practices in Finnish newsrooms. In light of the potentials and challenges posed by media convergence, the research makes the voice for design professionalism, rather than regarding visual journalism as a developed form of craft.
