WIRED’s Infographics

I’ve always loved the WIRED magazine publication and one thing in particular that they do well is data visualisations and infographics. They have an amazing constantly churning on work, whether it be politically motivated or simply for fun.

It’s also interesting to see how effective visualisations can really alter how we view something. Furthermore, prizing useful and personal tidbits from a wealth of data is something that we can all learn to do. A quote from one of their articles:

“I really think a good graphic sparks curiosity,” she says. This is perhaps the most important takeaway of all. Like The Origin of (Almost) Everything suggests, the best science writing and illustrations don’t just answer your questions—they compel you to ask more.

More of WIRED’s infographics here, from hand-drawn visualisations to fast food chain calories.
