As a natural continuation of the previous post on the Paper-Based Pie Chart, infosthetics is hosting its first competition. One that everyone should be able to enter, regardless of programming experience or data visualization expertise.
Deadline: Tuesday 10 February, 12pm. First prize: the book Tactile: High Touch Visuals, about the design of hand-made, mostly paper, objects (and an ideal Valentine's gift for a design-addicted friend). Jury: infosthetics and Nicholas O'Leary (creator of the paper-based pie chart). Criteria: beauty and originality versus readability and usability. The winner and all top entries will be posted next week.
- Build a paper-based data visualization (made with paper), in any shape, form or scale. Real data is preferred.
- Email your entry to paper at infosthetics.com.
- Attach 1 image, JPG, 600x600px.
- Include 50-100 words describing your entry. A link to a webpage with more information is allowed.
Wanted: sponsors for future competitions!
