COUCHELLA 2020 is here! I’m not proud of myself for watching 45 hours of content in 3 weeks, but desperate times call for desperate measures. I even saw a film called “What Men Want” and I still don’t have a clue.
This is my Makeover Monday submission for week 13, inspired by the colors of my favorite tracksuit I wore somewhere in the early 90s. Maybe it’s just nostalgia, but I can’t get enough of gradients… And the most shocking discovery: where are artichokes?
Do we need to bother about culture? We are a group of animals. We use language and empathy, and practice collaboration and inter-group competition. The unwritten rules of how we do these things differ from one human group to another. “Culture” is how we call these unwritten rules about how to be a good member of the group.
This week’s MakeoverMonday challenge wasn’t the easiest one. There was a lot of data, but I don’t think anything else could be made of it than a line or area chart. I didn’t even want to make it, but then the idea popped into my mind, to play with fonts here a little and make the push minimal design to the maximum.
When the Game of Thrones series came to an end (which I haven’t seen one episode of, as I didn’t find the first book that interesting… sorry, not sorry) I had the idea to create a dataviz from the most popular series that has already ended. On this viz I compared the IMDB scores of the first and last episodes of the Top 15 series according to their number of ratings.
This is my weekly Makeover Monday submission, I really liked the topic. Also, this means that that’s my 3rd in a row, so wooohooo! It’s striking, that poor, but happy and rich, but sad are basically non-existent categories.
It’s my 5th day home and I’m starting to have the dumbest dataviz ideas. Being inside all the time can be pretty hard, but I hope having a creative tsunami will be one of its worst side effects.
Hungary declared state of emergency because of the coronavirus outbreak. It is okay to be afraid of the COVID19, but it’s also okay not to feel panicked about it. Anyway, I made a chart in Tableau for both the worriers and the super laid back dudes out there!
In developing countries a higher ratio of women thinks they deserve to be hit than men. I’m not saying it’s our fault that a lot of women suffer from domestic violence for the slightest reasons, but everything starts with respecting ourselves. To all the women out there: you deserve so much better!
I rarely feel the urge to take on the weekly Makeover Monday challenge as the topics usually get me down (dying, lack of sanitation, homelessness, trials…), but this seemed to be too cute to pass.
How shocking does it sound, that 4 studios made up more than 70% of the total gross income of Hollywood with only 12% of the films? I know I’m a real snob, but I hope that someday people will come to their senses and start watching good movies.
Despite all the bad news, we’re facing every day due to the broad media coverage of our modern times, the world is getting better in so many ways. This visualization shows how life expectancy is rising all over the globe in the past 5 decades, while the fertility rate is going down. The causes of these trends root in several factors, but one thing is for sure: we’re living longer than any generations before us.
I’m pretty obsessed with anything related to space, I have the milky way tattooed on my collarbone, got the lunar lander for my birthday from mom and I light my nights with a 3D printed Moon. Today I had some idling between the projects I’m working on, so I decided to do something Moon themed as a mental masturbation.
I’m one of those dinosaurs that still use Last.fm, and I like nothing more than visualizing the data I make. For me, 2019 was an extraordinary year music-wise, I set a new scrobbling record and discovered a lot of new songs and bands (thanks Spotify).
I tend to feel that I give way too many f*cks about things that other people give zero f*cks about. This time I made a dataviz in Tableau of the films that use the F word almost as frequently as articles.
Having been born in 1987 I think I belong to the golden generation of trash Christmas movies. I remember Arnold Schwarzenegger desperately fighting for Turbo Man at the department store, Chevy Chase lightning up the town with Xmas decorations or Tim Allen turning into Santa Claus with great nostalgia. But my favorite of all is Home Alone 2. Growing up in the 90s meant, that you had 5 videotapes on top and watched them night and day. I still know the whole film by heart and after more than 25 years, and can’t get bored of it.
Why get out of bed when you can read about people who got out of bed? This pretty much sums up my past weeks, so I decided to make a visualization from an idea that has spent a long time on my to-do list. I put together a database from all the books I’ve read since 2009 (the year I started using moly) and it turned out that the 278 titles almost add up to 100 000 pages.
Koalas are getting functionally extinct after the massive bushfires in Australia and it’s the saddest news of November. According to the Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) there are no more than 80,000 animals are left living in the wild, which leaves the species functionally extinct. The term means that their population declined to a point, where they […]
I’m a really big fan of Black Mirror, even though it gives me the creeps how soon this can all turn from fiction to reality. Bandersnatch is an episode that’s first of its kind, last year I spent 4 hours playing through all possible endings. While I was scrolling on Etsy, I discovered a flowchart […]
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with one of the most popular prototyping tools, Figma. It has a very steep learning curve (especially if you have an Adobe background, as the shortcuts and mechanisms work pretty much the same), and we can quickly draw high fidelity wireframes from scratch to show the clients how the actual product […]
These Word Urban Games are advertised all over town and as I was walking to the subway yesterday morning I just found a real Hungarian e-sport opportunity. There’s a reconstruction going on in the city centre for months now (that makes biking impossible), and I picked out a spot where some cobblestones were missing. The […]
I had an urgent dashboard redesign request for a conference. This was the first time for me using small multiple donut charts, and it took hours until I managed to fit the labels (with help). One useful advice: don’t forget to check for blanks if texts get messed up! Two charts were showing the exact […]
I had to come up with a visual about our company’s design process for a client presentation. This pic shows how we get from the brainstorming period through creating prototypes to the phase when we’re ready for the user acceptance test. When there’s a request like that, I always make two versions: a white that […]
Best practice at it’s best! Having a look at Britain’s rapidly decreasing coal consumption is a jaw-dropping view and an example to follow. This topic was the weekly Makeover Monday exercise, I owe a big thanks to my colleague, Bela for helping me create this faceted (or small multiples) area chart. Click to explore the […]
The rapid loss of bees due to the extensive usage of pesticides could soon lead to extinction, that scientists say, would also mean the end of humanity. The explanation is easy, out of the 100 crop species that provide us with 90% of our food, 35% are pollinated by bees, birds and bats. The formula […]
It was such a long time since I made an infographic just for fun! I’ve had this topic in my mind for ages, but been procrastinating due to other priorities. I was working on this one for 2 days and it really grew close to my heart. The inspiration for the dinosaurs came from depositphotos, […]
I had nothing else to do, so I took last week’s Makeover Monday challenge. I’m not that satisfied with the outcome, but spent so much time drawing these icons, that I’m posting it anyway. Here’s the Tableau Public link.
I had one day to make a fully designed dashboard from scratch, that was quite a challenge. Usually I just have a look at the data, let it sink in and I’ll get back to the task when I came up with a data design. For this I had only 6 hours from the first […]
Scoops are flying low these days, so I was pleased to see not my dessert ruined on the ground for a change: the banana has finally split for good. This food disaster definitely cried for a makeover! The title of the pic is ‘Death by ice cream’. It’s not the first time I see an […]
Everything you’ve every wanted to know about EDI* but were afraid to ask… Here’s a new infographic delivered for Youredi on how EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) works and why more and more companies use it on a day-to-day basis.
Warm up time! This is my first Tableau dashboard for a year now, and I chose such a nice topic as a dataviz workout! I was cycling home on Monday wearing just a T-shirt, watched everything bloom around me and thought, how cool it would be if I had data to visualize the average breast […]
This week I was working on a fleet management dashboard (from data generation and masking to UI) in Power BI and had a really hard time with the design this time. The original report that we wanted to improve contained only one chart, a heatmap in Excel and that was a core element that needed […]
At the office we have a whiteboard on the wall that we like doodling on, and my Friday afternoons are usually all about drawing and drinking lemon flavoured non-alcoholic beer to kick the weekend off. Today I sketched up these two guys (a normal distribution and a skewed distribution) to cheer up my colleague, inspired […]
This is the first infographic made for YOUREDI from a planned series of four. The Finnish company is a vendor enabling digital innovation through providing integration platform as a service (iPaas). The graphics will focus on different branches of transportation logistics, starting with the maritime shipping industry – as this one is the biggest yet […]
I started working full time in 2011 when I was still doing my masters at the university. This practically meant, that all my vacations have been taken out to do tests, write assignments and prepare for a language exam. I don’t have the slightest idea how I managed to get any sleep in those years, […]
At Starschema we’re planning to introduce a blockchain based internal monetary system where pesos can be spent on company gadget. We can earn money by taking part in various social activities like meetup presentations, holding internal trainings or writing blog posts among many other things. Pesos can be transferred to other colleagues too for helping […]
Another Power BI demo dashboard fresh out of the oven! All telco companies need to have focused retention programs to mitigate the risk of losing customers by profiling and predicting churners and taking preventive actions. This dashboard lets you analyze the profiles of people who left within the last month (churners) versus the ones who […]
At the beginning of this year, I got a project to prepare a decent looking demo dashboard in Power BI for our company to use at presales meetings. I chose the topic of utilization as it’s something everyone is interested in, regardless of the industry they’re working in. Tracking the productivity and efficiency of employees […]
I’ve been obsessed with the Queen and her corgis for a long time, but after watching The Crown on Netflix I irreversibly fell in love with these four-legged furballs. Every time something weird came up in the show I was like wow, this can’t be true, I’m definitely googling it… Turns out, such fascinating things […]
I drew my first riot girl in December for a dataviz project and I’m still crazy about these grey illustrations with a twinge of red. This redraw was my practice for the weekend, inspired by the song by She Wants Revenge, Red Flags and Long Nights.
I’ve been long struggling with drawing hands but ended up either dropping the idea or covering them up somehow. A couple of weeks ago I saw a beautiful pocket universe illustration on Pinterest and thought I’ll just give it a try. It didn’t turn out as perfect but seems okayish as a first attempt.
I started learning R a few weeks ago after an internal C# training that has left me completely devastated. Even though I thought it would be a long shot for me to start with, I was surprised that I could follow the codes for almost an hour… the rest of the time was spent by […]
When my Wacom tablet arrived in November I started sketching the below girl, my very first freehand drawing. It has been put aside for a while but I started finishing it up yesterday evening. As she looks like the type of rebel who listens to Arctic Monkeys in a city that never wakes up I […]
We had this task at work to experiment with new dataviz softwares, that are not that popular as Tableau and Power BI. I choose to explore Flourish, a tool that is more suitable for data journalists than analysts with its easy to put together, but eye-candy ready-made charts. Even though it’s easy to use and […]
I’ve been listening to the Silversun Pickups a lot lately and having a hard crush on the song called Lazy eyes, I decided to put my recently lazy hands into use. I don’t have the slightest idea of what popular eye colors mean, but as long as Wikipedia has this covered, let’s just be cool […]
The below infographic I made for a Hungarian dataviz competition, where the data was provided by the Budapest Airport. As the dataset was not that complicated, containing only a date field, country and city as dimensions and three measures (air traffic movement, number of passengers and the capacity of the plane), I saw no use […]
In the past couple of days, I was working on a monumental infographic for a winery. I almost spent 40 hours creating the graphs and icons in Adobe Illustrator, the wine regions of Italy taking 3 hours of drawing in itself. Even though this was an immense piece of work, I learned a lot during […]
I haven’t left the house for 48 hours as I’m not feeling that well lately plus I caught some kind of a virus. To chase my negative thoughts away I started to redraw my swimming girl into this quiet loneliness.
I was asked by the Hungarian National Academy of Sciences to draw some infographics on the status of the national labour market. The series will contain four pages in the following topics: educational differences, pay gap visualization by gender, women by top career choices and the situation of mothers with small children. The first two […]
I just received my first drawing pad (a Wacom Intuos) yesterday and I literally can’t put the pen down ever since I unpacked it. I had the idea of the first illustration to create long before it has arrived. I read a drama by one of my favourite contemporary Hungarian poets (Je suis Amphitryon by […]
Plants and I are in a continuous on-again, off-again relationship. Me trying to care, but they refuse to stay alive. The greatest shock came to me this summer when my all-time partner in crime, the dwarf pine threw up the sponge after 3 years. Even if there are hardships in life – in this case, […]
