The four data visualizations above represent the data in a similar way. They represent it in a circular way, with bits of the data stemming out from the center. I picked these examples, because I liked the use of in the background, and I thought the distribution of information was innovative. They are successful because they draw the viewer in, asking him or her to read the fine print on the visual.

I liked this visual, because I found the use of typography overplayed on top of a cityscape to be very different and intriguing. It is a simple idea, but the end result doesn’t appear to be so simple. They type is very clear and easy to read and interpret, which makes this a good example.

I liked the use of color in this visual. I also liked how simple and easy to read it was, with the data being represented in a variety of ways while still remaining cohesive to the visual as a unit.
The top two visuals make use of the circular design (like the ones towards the top), and I like the use of color in these designs. The asymmetrical balance makes these designs successful, as well as the use of the whale as a visual element in the second one.
In the two designs above, the use of line makes them effective. They clearly represent the information through the use of a key along with the graph in the center. Although the color palettes on both are different, they are both effective.
