Summary
"Diagraphics delivers the ultimate word on information graphics design. In the tradition of Edward Tufte's Envisioning Information, Stephen Few's Show Me the Numbers, and Kim Baer's Information Design Workbook, Chilean designer Macarena San Martín offers a definitive look at the cutting edge of clear, powerful design for bar graphs, line graphs, scatterplots, pie charts, area maps, and all manner of modern display graphs. San Martín's Diagraphics is an indispensable resource for twenty-first century datagraphics designers. Organizing information, especially complex information, is not an easy task, and doing so for others as a communication tool for an eye-catching image, is even less so. This book is a collection of over 140 examples of maps, sketches and diagrams, and graphs that have achieved this feat. The designers who created the work showcased in the following pages are truly international, and while they may not speak the same language as one another, they communicate common messages and themes through design--information design. Their work exemplifies how a single concept can be reprensented in several different and original ways, without losing sight of design's main objective: to organize and communicate complex information in an easily accessible and engaging manner."--Publisher's website
