Have a look:

Human Traffic – Human Cost

This infographic shows different types of human traffic, or other ways of paying for human life, worldwide, from the ancient times to present.

I’ve chose to design it like a spider web in order to be a metaphor for such a negative network from which once caught is hard to escape.

Made for “The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards” Knowledge is Beautiful Challenge. Published in the Shortlist.

Clock for Day and Night

A minimalist clock displaying your local hour by showing how much from the Day (AM time – white), or from the Night (PM time – black) has passed.

To view the other hours, move your mouse over it.

The closer you are to the center, the faster time flies – just how we feel time flows at different speeds depending on what we are doing or feeling…

Information Graphics by TASCHEN

I just received the new information design book from Taschen:

2010 Global Migration – Double Paper Pie Chart

An interactive/hand-made paper pie chart about The 2010 Global Emigration and Immigration.

The visualization presents the 2010 global emigration and immigration, by showing the top 30 countries by the number of emigrants/immigrants, and all the rest of the world grouped by geographic regions, and shows where and how many people are migrating for each of these countries/regions.
Enjoy exploring :)

The Nuclear Radiation Chart

This “chart” shows the nuclear radiation data, and tries to explain the relationship between the numbers about radiation known to the public (right side of the triangle), from the media, such as 400mSv/hour recorded at Fukushima nuclear plant in 15 March, or 2mSv/year, the background radiation experienced by everyone and the same numbers but compared at the same unit (not per hour/year/instant/lifetime) – this is the radiation rate, which shows how many times more than normal the radiation is (left side of the triangle).
Then, by having the chart arranged in a triangle, with the timeline at the bottom, the chart tries to give a clearer view on this issue.

I made this chart in collaboration with Fabian Fucci, who has explained me this subject, stressed upon the role of the comparison which he made and the challenge of having it shown into 1 piece.

Butterflowers – Martisoare

Ro: Martisoarele Butterflowers – martisoare hand-made, pictate cu acrylic (rezistent la apa), sub forma de brose sau felicitari.

Ma gasiti in Piata Unirii, Cluj-Napoca, in spatele statuii lui Matei Corvin, in perioada 25.02.2011 – 02.03.2011.

Acesti “Butterflowers” sunt o continuare a proiectului meu Butterflowers’ Garden de data ofline si hand-made.
1 Martie Fericit!

EN: “Martisoare” are little hand made crafts made to celebrate the arrival of spring, in Romanian tradition. People give them to one another, especially to kids and women at 1st March.

I find my Butterflowers’ Garden a great symbol of spring and continued the Butterflowers’ Garden project with a series of painted Butterflowers that can be worn as accessories, and also greeting cards for this occasion. They are painted with acrylic, so they are water proof.

If you are in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, during 25.02.2011 – 02.03.2011, you can find me selling them in Unirii Square, behind the Matei Corvin statue.

Happy 1st Mach!
LATE UPDATE: And so it went:

The HTML Christmas Tree

The Individual CO2 Paper Pie Chart

Individual CO2 emissions (for USA) vs. how to reduce them.

The pollution data is organized in the shape of letter C, the remaining part, can be expanded to form a circle, O, revealing tips for reducing the CO2 emissions, and facts about the tree’s role in reducing CO2.

The more the O expand, the smaller the C is.

Made on printed colored paper, stitched, glued, then photographed.

Data viz: Global Life Expectancy

A new data visualization I made. Life expectancy for people born in 1990, 2000 and 2006 in various countries over the world, each continent’s highest and lowest life expectancy. First graph is a view through the 1990s – 2090s timeline, while the second one shows the same data, viewed by age. And a graph showing the increase/ decrease life expectancy patterns for those countries.

The data comes from a new data viz online platform that launches today (1st Oct. 2010) at the Cooper Hewitt Design Conference in New York (live stream).
Here is a link to the Data set.

Interactive Section Update

Updated the interactive section of my website. It now has more related information or images about the works, and a new design. And it’s on wordpress :).

Below you can view some of my favorite works. Enjoy.

CSS is beautiful – Illustrations

Some illustrations drown constucted in html/css. They are made from divs, mainly just experiments with border-radius.

Each element in the flower is a div, with position:absolute;. The rainbow is made from 4 divs one inside the other, positioned relative, colors are from border/background/border/background of each div, one inside the other.

Oh, they work in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Exlporer and Opera – only if you want to see a sqare flower and a square rainbow.
