This year I have become increasingly enamoured with infographics. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a good infographic must be worth 10,000. I love the way that truly amazing infographic designers can summarize and capture detailed and complex information in something that is both beautiful and easy to understand.
This obsession has got to the point where I now have a section dedicated to infographic blogs in my RSS reader. When I share the ones I really like people often ask where I get them from, so I thought I would share the love. These are the infographic blogs/sites that make the grade:
- Information is Beautiful
- Good.is Transparency Department
- Visual Complexity
- Information Aesthetics
- The Guardian Datablog
I also got The Visual Miscellaneum: A Colorful Guide to the World’s Most Consequential Trivia in the post a couple of weeks back. It is a beautiful collection of fascinating infographics put together by David Mccandless (author of Information is Beautiful). It is some of the best bedtime reading I have ever had, I can not recommend it highly enough.
Do you have another awesome source of beautiful inforgraphics? If you do let me know…
