Some people enjoy reading books. Others like to kick back and watch TV or play video games.
I’m weird. I like going online and reading other people’s stuff. I also like mucking around in Photoshop and creating inane things like logos and cartoons.
So, it’s probably no surprise that I would “have a go” at Dan Meyer’s design competition No.2. The whole idea is to showcase 2007 in four information design jpg’s that utilise data in various forms. I found this a lot harder than my first attempt in Competition No.1 – because it was hard to find meaningful personal statistics. (And much what I have ended up including is very questionable in the meaningful stakes.) Anyway, it really made me think – some parts I think turned out OK and other parts I know are as dodgy as can be.
Here it is.
