I’m somewhat of a dork when it comes to numbers and stats. I’m good at math, but that isn’t what I mean. I just like how data can be used to tell a story.
I stumbled upon a poster series that’s available through Flowing Prints that shows how America learns. There are three available.
What I really enjoy about these illustrations is the creativity it took to show the data in captivating ways. I imagine these guys are going to expand their talents to other topics. Here’s how the guys explain themselves:
Spread Awareness. Support Data.
Each series we choose an open data source,analyze and visualize it, and design three original prints that each provides a unique view into the data. Each print tells you a story.
This series is on education. Buy the series for yourself, or send it to an education department near you.
