Instead of using vector drawings normally associated with informational graphics, designer Peter Ørntoft has used carefully planned photographs to create a series of booklets based on opinion polls for 10 Danish social topics. Exploring statistics related to crime, religion and health, his work puts a very personal and hands-on touch to these social numbers, asking the viewer not only to learn from the information, but to feel it as well.
