It might be a little late for an election infographic, but I thought this was interesting and helpful in visualizing platforms based on words said. It’d be interesting to compare the word content of candidates vs. the elected candidate in office to see if there is consistency.
From the website:
It is built from the ground up to work efficiently and smoothly on both desktop and mobile platforms like iOS and Android, taking advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 on modern browsers. The focus is on usability, performance, small size, A-grade browser support, convention over configuration and an easy-to-use API. The OOP-based code of the library is designed to be modular, extensible and very easy to understand.”
I had a hard time finding a relevant infographic to my topic (mapping APA organizations at Penn), but I liked the purely aesthetic design of this infographic:
I like the way the designer uses color and shapes to draw out smaller data chunks from the overall visualization. Since my project will have a similar amount of levels of graphs for the project, I’ll likely refer to this as a design reference.
Also, as a side note, I found this a useful resource on the Visual.y blog: 30 places to find open data on the internet.
I’m a fan of Warby Parker’s 2011 Annual Report. Its use of infographics spruces up the company report more than any other I’ve seen in business classes.
Visual.ly has rolled out a few tools to let you make easy infographics with the Twitter and Facebook API here: http://create.visual.ly/ It’s great that these tools make it easy to visualize data for people who aren’t as design-inclined, but I’m curious to see the scope of design flexibility that these tools will offer (kind of like ToutApp’s Your Year in Emails — great data, fixed design)
