In case you have lost track, as of today there are 41 days until the 2012 U.S. Presidential Elections.
In terms of design, this means you’ll be seeing obscene amounts of red, white and blue. But there are always those who manage to break the mold and go beyond our expectations like this unamed street artist.
With infinite amounts of data to sway your opinion every which way; it’s easy to be overwhelmed by so many data visualization styles. Take this pinterest screenshot for example, one category twelve different visual styles.
But when it comes to data visualization no one compares to the work thatThe New York Timesis producing. Their interactive graphics and data visualizations provide some of my favorite color-coded, user friendly interfaces and visual solutions to one of the nations most heated debates. While the Huffington Post also has one of the best generaloverview dashboards of the election as it stands. No matter how closely you’re following this election, these sites always present some of the most surprising and accurate data around.
But if you’re tired of seeing and hearing the same old, arguments, with election season right around the corner, what better way to declare your political preferences or neutrality than with a pair of election-inspired flats and let your true colors shine. If nothing else, thePalm Beach-based slippermakes a greatconversation starter.
So keep an eye on the presidential and election art and design world. I am curious to see what the newest visuals will be for this election. What are the visual sources you call reliable and constantly look for. Will we be seeing new memes of the election other than that of the 47%?
