Seeing in Color – Love pie, hate piecharts.

David McCandless is a London-based author, writer and designer. His passion is visualizing information with a minimum of words. He says his pet-hate is pie charts, or in his words ” Love pie. Hate pie-charts.” His site Information is beautiful features many great, thought provoking visualizations. Here’s a couple of our favorites.

This is about colours and cultures. You can see this image on the Information Is Beautiful site. All sorts of interesting things. Evil is black everywhere but death is black, white or green.  Success is red or green. Why red? Why green?

We think this would definitely make Modenus blue, and probably purple!

And finally, the site reproduces a graphic by designer Yang Liu on cultural differences between the East and the West.  Posted on the Brain Pickings blog.
