Here at Visual News, we’ve been looking for designers/illustrators to participate in an ongoing design series called the Data + Design Project. As an off-shoot of Column Five Media, we are ardent supporters of the union between data and design, so in February we started curating the Data + Design project gallery as a way to show how flexible and beautiful data visualizations can actually be.
Each month, a few designers are invited to create a data visualization piece, using data about a subject which interests them. Last month the theme was Bubble Charts, a style of graphic which plots data using points of varying sizes and locations to visually represent a value. We’re very excited about the beautiful, interesting and informative results we’ve received from this months four designers: Dan Matutina, Matt Naylor, Nate Luetkehans and Matt Chase.
Check out the designs contributed for “Bubble Chart March” below, then see the main Data + Design Project page for full-sized versions. You can always find the project through the link on our menu bar.
