Well the end is pretty frikkin’ nigh. This is the final news day of the series as The Guardian doesn’t issue on Sunday.
Todays visual plots all of the headlines in the Guardian on a grid, colour categorised and ordered as to their position in the paper. Relationships are formed for authors who appear more than once. The idea of this was to create a simple layout where patterns become apparent, where heavily coloured sections are representative of special dedicated sections within the paper, and authors can be tracked through their articles.
Incase you didn’t notice, this was more of a type based graphic. ;)
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.
