The Best Infographics of the Year: Nate Silver on the 3 Keys to Great Information Design

The Best Infographics of the Year: Nate Silver on the 3 Keys to Great Information Design | Navigate | Scoop.it

The second installment of The Best American Infographics 2014 (public library) has an introduction by master-statistician Nate Silver and fifty-eight examples of stellar information design shedding light on such diverse topics as the history of space exploration, the sleep habits of famous writers, the geography of where gay people stay in the closet, the comparative shapes and sizes of major baseball parks, and the social network of jazz musicians in the 1920s. 

Silver, the author of The Signal and the Noise, considers the two factors that make an infographic compelling — providing a window into its creator’s mind and telling a story that “couldn’t be told in any other way.

These ads will make you smile.  Take a quick peek.  Maybe they'll inspire you!
