The Art of Visual Communication

15 April 2009

As a graphic designer one of the things that interests me is the art of visual communication. So I was tickled to find these brilliant examples which are a collaboration between Ben Branagan and Gareth Holt for an exhibition called 'Rank': Picturing the Social Order 1516 - 2009.

These imaginatively designed 'charts' were created to depict statistical data exploring different aspects of social hierarchy. The text is easier to read on Ben's site - the charts aren't so meaningful or impressive if you can't read them!
