Challenge: Flowchart

By aquaman

In this challenge I plan to create a flow chart of a day for me and the number of decisions that I have to make in a day. My goal is to make it as entertaining and informative as possible.

Hays Code

By b4ssm4st3r

I wanted to do something related to my Senior Thesis for this project and I decided to focus on the Hays Code. The reason why I picked this is because it is kind of confusing to understand because of all the changes and because Hollywood ignored it for a lengthy period of time. The problem with visualizing such a complicated topic is well... visualizing the layout. In a way I wish I had put more thought into this one because I am not completely happy with the result.

For one thing, it looks to busy for me for some reason. I attribute this to the cartoons I had found, in a way they...

First Come, First Serve

By be88

Unfortunately, I am not very savvy with using image editors, so there was a lot more I wanted to accomplish with my image, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Anyway, my image is data collected on student debt in the '08-'09 school year. For my other challenge my argument was about graduation ceremony and the seating being first come first serve. This image is a way of supporting my argument. In my original persuasive essay I talked about how hard students had worked to graduate from a top university and how it would be unfair that their family members aren't guaranteed a seat to...

Facebook has taken over the world!

By Emccarthy

Today, Facebook is popular around the world. I am sure most of you have said at one point..."Hey, i'll facebook you." My information project presents the popularity of facebook around the globe. Presently, facebook has 600 million active users. Additionally, 41.6% of the United States population has an active facebook account. Personally, I am a huge facebook fan. I find myself spending countless hours browsing my mini feed and attempting to keep up with the latest status updates. A world without facebook doesn't seem possible at this point in time.

It's a matter of pride!

By aquaman

DC and Pittsburgh are two cities that take sports very seriously from the high school level to the professional level. The goal of this infographic was to debate which city is a better city for sports lovers. It was difficult to figure out what I wanted to make this about, I'm not really an idea man but i can do the design stuff when I've got the tools. Though I'm not totally happy with this project, I'm going to look into other editors like prezi or gimp. As for the four design principles, I honestly didnt very well with them. The text has good proximity and there is repetition. But...

How Much Sodium Do YOU Ingest?

By mooomooo04

Ever since I read an article on a health food and diet website about sodium and how it can cause health problems I have been carefully monitoring the amount of sodium in the foods that I eat. I check the back of just about every package, carton and every menu to make sure I stick as close to the 2,300mg recommended serving as possible. You would be surprised at how hard it is to follow the FDA’s guidelines. For instance, an example I used in my project was pancakes. A serving of pancakes from a fast food restaurant comprises almost half of your total daily sodium. Also, before I went...


Less Yoga = More Stress

By yogini

For this project, I wanted to stay along the lines of the theme of basically everything I've been working on this semester and make the argument that yoga relieves stress levels. I wanted to take the most and least stressed cities in the US and look at how large their yoga community was compared to how stressed the city is. I decided to do this by creating a ratio of the population of the city divided by the number of yoga studios in that city. This ratio would determine how many people there are per yoga studio.

The outline of the US was the best graphic to base this data...

Childhood Obesity

By annie.bru

My goal for this infographic was to help people become aware of the alarming rates of childhood obesity with just a few key numbers. As a nation, obesity is a huge problem for many adults, and poses even more threats to children.

I really care about health and fitness, so I figured out fairly early that fitness would be my focus for the infographic. I looked into different health statistics, and was struck by the statistics about childhood obesity in the United States. I used “F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America's Future 2010,” a report on obesity done by,...

The Dream Act

By Mena

After two attempts to pass the Dream Act, both times were unsuccessful. The first attempt for this act was August 2001, and the second attempt was March 2009, both ended up having new revisions made to the original act. With the failure of passing this act million of good students are being denied basic opportunities for higher education. Every year about 65,000 undocumented immigrants graduate from high school. Most of the students who graduate are on the honor role, take part in leadership roles, are star athletes, but all of them have a thirst for knowledge. The majorities of these...


The Warblers vs New Directions: Who Sings About What?

By bellekid

Most of what I listen to on my iPod is "Glee" related music. I've fallen in love with the Warblers this season and after seeing what Wordle could do I decided to use it to compare the lyrical content of group songs sung by New Directions (the main glee club on Glee) versus that of the Warblers (their rivals.)

To do this I got the lyrics to all the group songs from New Directions and all of the Warblers songs and made word clouds of them. I then listed out the 50 biggest words from each and decided to see what overlapped between the two groups and what did not.

In the end I...
