Mapping the Stars

Of the acting and directing world over time. This interactive piece from the New York Times charts the networks between actors and directors. The networks on the right while examples and stories are located to the left. When you scroll to an example, the network to the right is highlighted in yellow. If you click a link, you are taken to the IMDb page for that particular film. A really nice piece.

I am a graphic designer who focuses on information design. My day job? I am the data visualisation manager for the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. (This blog is my something I do on my own time and does not represent the views of the Fed, blah blah blah legal stuff.) And with my main interest in information design—be it in the shape of clear charts, maps, diagrams, or wayfinding systems—I am fortunate that my day job focuses on data visualisation. Outside of work, I try to stay busy with personal design work. Away from the world of design, I enjoy cooking and reading and am interested in various subjects from history and geography to politics to science to the arts. And I allow all of them to influence my work.
