Nielsen, the company that measures consumer media, is hosting an infographic competition using their data about social media, mobile usage, and video/TV usage. The goal is to create an infographic using the most interesting sets of data.
There is just so much data that it is hard to wrap ones head around it all. I did this card-sorting activity to categorize the various types of data. Each sticky represents one data set.
I am still not sure which to emphasize—mobile data usage, social media, or video. I just started to put a few graphs together in illustrator. My hope is that the story will emerge as I plod through creating the graphics.
The final entries will be judged as follows: Storytelling (25%), Data Insight/Analysis (25%), Creativity and Aesthetics (25 %), and Accuracy of data usage (25%). The entry deadline is this thursday and the prizes for the winner are pretty cool. Check out the prizes here.
I know I don’t have a lot down yet, but any conceptual contributions would really help. I am tempted to break the designer co-op rules and sneak in a post on tuesday so that I can get more feedback before the deadline. Wish me luck.
