A High-resolution super graphic — thank you Edward Tufte!

viznotes - a High-resolution Super Graphic

Following the advice of Edward Tufte, Yale professor emeritus and graphic/presentation/statistical genius and visionary, I created a “High-resolution Super Graphic” at the seminar I attended yesterday. Please feel free to download it [large PDF version]. Relish my misspellings, and note that he spoke of “multivariate” displays/analysis (read his: Envisioning Information, p15, Visual Explanations, p.110, and most extensively, Beautiful Evidence, pp. 129-130, not “multivariable problems”, which is how I heard it.

Hi-tech tools used: Unruled spiral sketchbook, Pelikan fountain pen, Aurora fountain pen, Flair pen (when the Pelikan ran out of Aurora black ink).

Type Casting

A design contest asked to name three subjects after typefaces that would resonate with the subject’s connotation. I cannot resist layered meanings (and puns), so here are my three prize-winning entries naming a dog, a band, and a child. Here’s a link for the complete post from the UnBeige blog, hosted by www.mediabistro.com.

Typeface puns, who would have thought?
