information is beautiful

since going to the new blood show back in june i've become really interested in infographics. this discussion on newsnight a few nights ago, on the pros and cons of infographics, the old style versus substance debate, got me thinking about what i'd like my final piece/s to look like.

attractive design can make complex information/statistics more accessible to a wider audience but the problem with a lot of infographics is although they look very sleek, they don't help their audience identify on a personal level with the facts they are representing, which is a shame i think. i'm hoping a more illustrative approach might improve this.
