Infographic Design

Out of Your Hands

Brief

Design a poster or 3D object to display the information from a pre-existing online global data set.

Response

I used a data set by David McCandless that showed the relationship between physical characteristics and the likelihood of contracting a certain ailment (e.g. having blue eyes means you are more likely to be anaemic). I thought these connections appeared rather arbitrary. To highlight this, I designed an impossible matching pairs card game where the player must match the physical characteristic to the ailment despite there being no logical connection. It also plays on the name of the data set, 'Out of your Hands', and the phrase 'playing the hand you are dealt'.
