While we were talking about information design in class, I kept thinking about these examples. All of these were made by the same man, who is an engineer, programmer, and web artist, but I think his information design is fantastic.
The money chart, map of the internet, and the movie narrative chart are all great examples of how diverse information design can come, from super formal looking to hand drawn, but they all work in the way they are intended.
Although I really like all of these, my favorite two are the Lakes and Oceans, and the Gravity wells. The gravity well design both shows the comparative gravity between all the different planets and moons, and it explains in a very clear fashion how it is supposed to be read, making it accessible to anybody, even if they don’t have a background in physics or science.
