Raw Data by Steven Heller & Rick Landers

Raw Data presents work by sev­en­ty-three of the world’s most inno­v­a­tive infor­ma­tion graph­ics designers.


Now that huge amounts of infor­ma­tion can be gath­ered and processed with ever-greater speed, graph­ic design­ers and illus­tra­tors are play­ing a cru­cial role in explain­ing what all the col­lect­ed data real­ly means and how we can make sense of it to improve our per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al lives.
More than just a sur­vey of fin­ished work, Raw Data gets behind the final image to reveal how a stack of num­bers can be trans­formed into a beau­ti­ful image rich with mean­ing and expla­na­tion. Among the inter­na­tion­al prac­tices includ­ed are those who have been lead­ing the way in the info­graph­ics rev­o­lu­tion (Nigel Holmes, The New York Times ), along with a new gen­er­a­tion of design­ers only just emerg­ing from uni­ver­si­ty (Fer­nan­do Her­nan­dez, Tim Hucklesby)

Why we like it? 

  • its about a lot of data
  • inspir­ing to see dif­fer­ent ways of pre­sent­ing data
  • Beau­ti­ful infographic 

But, we pre­fer to visu­alise data in code and not in a sta­t­ic infographic.
