Olympic Rings + Visual Data
Off the subject of typography and still on color, I had to share this neat out-the-box thinking design that Gustavo Sousa created.
Sousa’s ‘oceaniaeuropeamericasafricaasia‘ was a design using the Olympic Rings portraying various global attributes and sizing the rings to indicate the value in each continent- example of attributes: % of household with TVs, child mortality, population and even McDonald outlets.
The only thing I would have to question is the source of his data, but great job in the whole concept.
**rings & color: Oceania (blue), Africa (yellow), Europe (black), Asia (green), Americas (red)
