Fantastic Natural Visualizations

As any of you know that have been following the blog for a bit, I’m a big fan of graphic design, especially when used to visualize data! I was really seduced by the simplicity and beauty of these visualizations. I picked them up on information aesthetics. The guy behind them is Jose Duarte, and the idea behind them is even cooler. He’s created a handmade visualization toolkit that is a box full of everyday items: balloons, string, etc. The items can be used to create most of our common visualization charts: pies, bars, and line graphs. The visual result is really provocative. I’d love to use this in one of my classes.
