As a right-brainer, I’ve always been attracted to visual representations of social issues, studies and information; particularly when attempting to make sense of financial data, statistics or the global economy. While doing my research on consumer trends (for another FAP post), I saw how one company effectively used a graphic (created at www.visualizing.org) to illustrate their point. Unlike the common pie-chart this graph was more like a piece of art—delivering it’s message to the public.
As a graphic artist, I love to see how other creatives take seemingly dry information and turn it into an “art form”. Visualizing.org is a website dedicated to the graphical understanding and sharing of such images. Featured in this post, “One Billion Dollar” by Michael Marcovici, makes an incredibly powerful statement. Constructed of actual dollars it really hit home for me. (Now, I’d like to know what one trillion dollars looks like……). In this post, I’ll share four more websites that are sure to keep you organized, inspired and entertained.
