Real World Infographics in 3-D

Posted in design, illustration, photography by aldorf on April 27, 2011

Infographics in 2-D are great, but real life, 3-D infographics are even more mesmerizing and interesting. Jose Duarte, a graphic designer, has been using found physical objects to present his data findings. For example, the balloons you see above represent the amount of Internet users there are in (from left to right) China, Europe, India, Brazil, Mexico, and Portugal. (via Holy Kaw!)

Thanks Alex Trimpe for putting this video together. Brilliant work and a helpful source in terms of Facebook stats.

The world is obsessed with Facebook, but it’s hard to fathom just how obsessed until you’ve seen the numbers. Video wizard Alex Trimpe lays bare our collective Facebook-loving souls in a new video called, appropriately enough, “The World is Obsessed With Facebook.”

The stats are beautifully laid out and animated. 500 million active Facebook users. 750 million photos uploaded in one weekend. 48% of us checking Facebook right when we wake up. And if that’s not scary enough, check out Trimpe’s snapshot of the activity on the site every 20 minutes. It’s insane. (via urlesque.com)
