A look back at the infographics that drew the most attention, on topics from happiness to Burning Man
In the last year, we've released a nearly 100 original infographics. Here is a look back at the ones that drew the most attention, on topics from happiness to Burning Man (click on the images to launch the infographics).
1: Mean Happiness
2: The Almighty Dollar
3: Most Targeted Books
Stanford Kay's piece looked at the books that parents most often ask to have removed from libraries. Gay penguins, Twilight's vampires, and Holden Caufield all made the cut. See all of Kay's work for GOOD here.
4: Dead Man Walking
5: Someone in America Loves You
Also by OPEN, this piece looks at American sentiment about countries around the world with some cheeky postcards: "Welcome to Iran. It's Radical!"
6: Drugged Culture
Another piece by Stanford Kay, showing how many millions of prescriptions for psychiatric drugs are written in America.
7: How You Will Get Hurt at Burning Man
8: Data Removal Service
Governments are constantly asking Google to remove sensitive information from its search engines. This piece, by Mgmt.design, looks at which governments make the most requests, and for what reasons. See all of Mgmt's work for GOOD here.
9: Border Battle
After North Korea's attack on its southern neighbor, we produced this piece, also with Column Five, on the warring nations' fighting capacity.
10: Haitian Aid
Design Language's piece looked at who had given aid to Haiti just a few weeks after the earthquake. Note that these numbers are certainly no longer accurate, but they do show who was the fastest to react. See all of Design Language's work with GOOD here.
