Data Visualisation from The Guardian

Professional Practice

In our seminar we were told about a section of The Guardian website dedicated to data visualisation.

Upon browsing through this section of the site, I came across this interesting data visualisation graphic on Charles Dickens novels.


Created to commemorate the Dickens 200th anniversary, the team went against all of their literary instincts and tried to reduce Dickens to numbers. The results were fascinating and revealed that there just might be s secret formula at work in the great man’s work. Published on The Guardian and shared around the world this infographic is a great example of using data to tackle a well-known subject in a fresh and new way.

I also found this interesting series of data graphics on the Man Booker prize which contains some imagery that I think I could take some inspiration from for my project.
