David McCandless: TED Talk on Data Visualization

Another school year has begun, and it’s time to start thinking about who inspires my design work. David McCandless and his information design are possibly near the top of my list. He recently gave a TED talk about his work, and I find it particularly interesting how he changes the mindset of specific data by comparing it to other information. Something to keep in mind for my next assignment. I am most intrigued by pieces that reveal a bigger picture behind the data– not just another bar graph or pie chart.
