Design Production for Print//More Infographics.

Researching more Infographic design for potential expansion in my printed media for my 'Good Is...' project- potentially use as statistics and factual design for my printed programme to be part of my hypothetical film festival event.

All images below are sourced from which showcases infographics and statistical data in a variety of Graphic Design formats.


"Nobel Prizes have been awarded every year since 1901. Where are all the winners from? Jon Bruner from Forbes puts it in a graphic. It's a simple yet effective approach where dots represent a won award, and countries are sorted by number of prizes won. The United States has clearly dominated the field since 1950, although many winners were foreign-born."

Love the simplicity of this infographic- would look wonderful as a tabloid print- distinctive and visually communicative. Simple to read and understand.

Brilliant designs- love the tongue in cheek narrative on the way that Infographic design is utilised. 
Great colour scheme too- really original and contemporary.

"Twitter engineer Miguel Rios pays tribute to the man, the legend. Zoomed out you see the portrait of Steve Jobs. Zoom in, and you see public tweets tagged with #thankyousteve sent out over a four and a half hour period on the evening of October 5. Tweets are ordered by number of retweets, left to right and top to bottom."

Wonderful concept and brilliantly executed- this is a truly unique and technologically representative of Job's life and legacy in a fantastically composed tribute.

"In case you're wondering whether you should be drinking in that local park (you know, the one with the horsey and swings) this weekend, Jen Cotton for Grubstreet New York offers this guide. [Thanks, Ben]"

An original take on the traditional venn diagram style of infographic- love the use of gradients and overlays to show the cross overs of the particular subject areas.

"In a follow-up to their mood maps, Scott Golder and Michael Macy of Cornell University look at mood cycles during the hours of the day:
They found that, on average, people wake up in a good mood, which falls away over the course of the day. Positive feelings peak early in the morning and again nearer midnight, while negative feelings peak between 9pm and 3am. Unsurprisingly, people get happier as the week goes on. They’re most positive on Saturdays and Sundays and they tend to lie in for an extra two hours, as shown by the delayed peak in their positive feelings. The United Arab Emirates provide an interesting exception. There, people work from Sunday to Thursday, and their tweets are most positive on Friday and Saturday.
It's strange that good mood peaks around midnight. Maybe the people who are in a bad mood slowly go to sleep, leaving only those in a good mood to tweet. Then again, negative mood also seems to peak around midnight. Peculiar. I don't have access to the full article, so if anyone does, I'd be interested to hear Golder and Macy's interpretations."

Again, another great representation using traditional forms of representing data with a very modern and technological subject matter (twitter). 

Love this design which represents the bikes in particular areas of San Fransisco- simple vector designs that are incredibly distinctive and instantly recognisable. Super sweet, contemporary design.
