Interactive Inspiration [165]

Closing the week with an overwhelming selection of interactive visualizations

September 23, 2016

There were so many outstanding interactive data visualizations these past couple of weeks, both from news outlets as well as from independent designers, that we could easily picked one of those to open this edition of Interactive Inspiration.

Instead, we decided to give a shout-out to a new collaborative project between Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu: Data Sketches. During 12 months, both will create a monthly visualization around a specific topic of their choosing. You can already see two projects available, corresponding to the months of July and August, and if you’re a regular reader of Visualoop, you already know that anything with the involvement of Nadieh Brehmer is almost sure to be of high-quality. We’ve featured her work not so long ago, and most of her projects are available to explore on her Visualoop profile. And of course, you should also check her website VisualCinnamon.com, one of the best data visualization blogs out there. As for Shirley, you can check out her work at her website sxywu.com

We’ll surely mention this project again here on Visualoop, but for now, let’s share the two topics already visualized by these young talented information designers, followed by the usual (overwhelming) round up of recent projects.
