knowledge is power

infographics - where data meets design

what makes good data visualisation?  

If looking for numbers ....
- colour change
- size
- orientation
- flicker

all are visual clues that the human brain processes within 250 milli-seconds

If looking for patterns .....
colour - can show correlation
- size - to show quantity
- orientation - to show trends

Good design can also communicate
- processes
- hierarchy
- anatomy
- chronology

your message is only as good as your ability to share it
