Today’s MOTD is a proper comprehensive infographic about the H1N1 virus. This map is truly unique because designer, RAJ, used a black background and vibrant ‘pig’ pink to pull the reader through the map from left to right, while reinforcing the overall theme.
The excellent use of multi-variant data sets is not lost in the black either. There are examples of timelines, gauges, diagram cross sections, geographic maps and iconology. All of these elements seamlessly describe the history of the illness, details about how it spreads and treatment techniques in humans.
This ‘blackboard’ technique is gaining popularity and has been integrated into cartoons as well as many other mediums of art.
