This one’s been a long time coming let me tell you! It’s been sat on my computer finished for almost two weeks now, and I feel really good it’s finally published, like a weight’s been lifted.
This visual was pretty much focused on the relationships created between headlines, authors, pages, and categories. I wanted to see how much of a mess the relationships could make if they were all surrounding one container (like the square graphs we drew as children, linking adjoining sides by straight lines to create beautiful symmetrical perspectives). It’s pretty easy to work out. The only thing you might need to know is that the weight of the lines are proportionate to the word count of each story. Sticky icky yummy yummy!
This is one day in a series that takes the news from one week of the Guardian newspaper, and visually represents it as a series of static visualisations. You may also be interested in:
- Monday - A typographic and layout based piece previewing the contents of the paper as ingredients.
- Tuesday - A list of headlines contained in the paper illustrated with references to the article or subject.
- Wednesday - A polar graph inspired layout mapping the stories and categories on colour coded concentric circles.
- Thursday - A content map showing the relationships between information inside of a circular container.
- Friday - A text heavy piece highlighting the sheer amount of information contained within in the paper.
- Saturday - A grid based typographic piece, showing patterns and author relationships through the paper.
