As others have said, this is the “most depressing infographic ever,” but I don’t think its that bad. Inspired and based on the Why Doctors Die article and Radio Lab podcast, this is my visual take on that material. Coincidentally the production of this graphic was interrupted by my own father-in-law passing away from cancer.
Visual.ly just released this interactive that charts all the Female artists who have achieved a #1 album since 1985
I was curious about how big the current pop stars are vs those my generation, like Madonna and such. While the data isn’t in on the longevity of Beyonce, she is off to a good start. Below is a capture of the interactive, Beyonce vs Madonna vs Alanis.
So this graphic I did was initiated by Ron Conway and then swept up a whole bunch of other people, mainly Bloomberg and the gun policy folks at the mayors office. They had some interesting data and the narrative fell into place from there. A bit of a different style for me as I would normally use photos to depict people but I felt that the sketch/watercolor has more gravitas.
What do you think?
The Visual.ly Marketplace has launched today. If you are looking for to get a professional infographic done, there is no better place. I’ve hand selected designers to work with and we have a sweet project management system to back it all up. This isn’t 99 designs and we are starting with a price point of $1,500 but you get what you pay for and we have a string of success to back it up.
Here is the official video.
This video will give you a bit more about the actual process. Please pay no attention to the epic-overload into (it didn’t make the final cut).
Any questions you can certainly reach me at jess at visual.ly.
