The exercise of mapping our habits and lifestyle and transforming all that data in infographics was taken to another level when Nicholas Felton launched his first annual report, back in 2005. Since then, we’ve noticed a rising number of personal graphics being created, mostly by students doing school assignments.
We are not talking about Infographic Resumes – another rising trend among the personal use of infographics – , but projects that tell the story, for instances, of a person’s eating and drinking habits, a list of references or the story of a trip around the world.
Like the infographic resumes, you’ll see a wide range of works in this selection. Many have a clear aesthetics focus, others are clearly experimental, and some are really impressive!
Hope you enjoy!
