I am trying to get away from the term infographic, so here is a “graphic post” I did for Mint.com I shop at a few different stores that have these points programs where the more you spend the more points you get which you can redeem for discounts or some crap you really don’t need, [...]

As you can see this project was [...]

Here is some client work I did for SloshSpot. Essentially it’s one point of data, the amount of beer consumed in the US annually, only it is envisioned in several different ways.

A few weeks ago, I covered some of the bizarre and obtuse visuals coming out of the difference branches of the military. Well today, I posed some questions to a member of the Pentagon’s “Engine Room;” a new group within the Department of Defense’s Comptroller’s Office whose focus is briefing creation and analytics.
