Information Is Beautiful

The amazing website was brought to my attention by Econsultancy this week and it is an absolute visual delight.

Its creator, David McCandless, an independent data journalist and information designer has made it his mission to distil the world’s data, information and knowledge into beautiful, interesting and above all, useful visualisations, infographics and diagrams.

One must remember that communicating data in its raw form can be hugely challenging with the results often not worth the effort. Graphs and charts often come across as boring and hard to read, with their intended insight often lost along the way.

McCandless and his team's works are mesmerising, humorous and incredibly insightful. With each one leaving you educated, humoured and aesthetically pleasured.
