Data, Viz, + Design Delights — October

Welcome to the second installment of Data, Viz + Design Delights! If this is your first time here — welcome! If you’re tuning in for round two, thank you — I hope you find this issue just as (if not more) interesting than the last. You’ll find a selection of curated links, vetted by me, on data viz and design. It contains things I’ve found helpful, enlightening, inspiring, or just stuff I thought was neat in the past month. Links are loosely organized into topics such as vizzes, articles, tutorials, etc. This month I found some new-to-me resources I’m excited to share with the community.

Without further ado, here’s what I found cool in October!

Chart illustrating the breakdown of Taylor Swift's earnings. Millions of dollars are represented as beads on a friendship bracelet, colored by revenue source.

And to close out October, a thread on color theory in It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

As much as I’d love to read all day, I cannot keep up with the entire internet. Want to share something interesting? Send me a link through this form!
