Does anyone on this list have the skillset to design really neat
infographics? For example the sorts of things that are on this site:
Principal, Sliced Bread Design
Sorry, the link didn't go through for some reason. Here's the examples of
infographics I was trying to post:
If you do this sort of thing, let me know off list.
Gorgeous stuff. Try Wired mag? They list their credits and do (or did)
a lot of cool infoporn.

I think the best illustrator for infographics is Marshall Clemens
I'd love to talk to you about this. We're a design firm in New York
with a penchant for information driven design. Give me a call.
I know a girl who's fantastic at infographics. Based in Copengahen,
I love doing this kind of thing and I would also recommend my friend
in London, Peter Grundy: http://www.grundini.com
Apt Media Inc.
I'd also check out a magazine called 'Good' (http://www.good.is).
They do a lot of those kinds of infographics:
Be very careful though a please ensure the data is represented
correctly. The example given
http://www.princeton.edu/~ina/infographics/ has some very bad
When they are comparing the size of sending the bullets and the
people are not in proportion to the data. For example the difference
between Israel and USA spending per capita is 36% percent larger but
the graphic is approximately 50% larger. The bullets are even worse.
The sending difference is 720% greater, where as the bullet is 4400%
This mistake is not unusual. Also be very aware where you going to
use these infographics as use on the web is very different to print.
Print will allow more detail, but the web allows interaction.
You should check out xplane - they are the best!
