I've always had a thing for numbers, which is why I do these infographics, but I haven't taken a math class since the second day of senior year of high school. At the time I was given a small math problem and here it is: Kenny can get college credit for a math class or he can drop the class and go home early because it's his last class of the day.

I chose wisely. And all my teachers said I would need math in my later life. It can be argued that I used it all the time in photography...in fact in college I wrote a paper on how photography is math in order to get out of my math credits (I had a ton of science credits, including astrophysics so it wasn't like I was a slacker.) But really the teachers were wrong...I don't need to use math because I have a sister who is Statistics and Math Professor at Ohio State University. If I have a math question she's only 10 digits away (she would probably want me to point out that it's actually 11 digits because of the 1)

So when I wanted to come up with some stats for Miloh's Q1 of Year One she helped me out...so in a way this is a bit of a guest post from her. I should note that I added some stats of my own, based on equations she gave me, but if any percentage is wrong here it's me that got it wrong not her.

I love this! I love infographics and data tracking. My biggest design crush is Nicholas Felton. And my favorite thing to design (and I'm now making a living designing wedding invitations) is the financials section in an annual report.

Thanks Kathleen...Felton is cool. I've just started visualizing data with these...I never really had a need before but I've always loved it. Check out coolinfographics.com it has some great stuff.

ReplyDeleteThis is incredible. And what a cool collaboration between you and your sis!

ReplyDeleteI am about ready to make this journey shortly. Thanks for categorizing it for me. Looks insurmountable :-)

i'll say it again, i'm pissed i didn't think of this infographics idea.

ReplyDeleteI have ideas planned out for the whole first year (I'm thinking 2 more styles of them...maybe more if I get bored) but I'd love away to figure out how to continue forever. How many times he tells me I'm not funny, How many times we embarrass him and all that stuff.
