Happy Friday

What a week, right? Thankfully it is coming to an end as we look to begin another weekend. So let’s take a look at xkcd, who has thankfully provided us with a form of pie chart that shows percentages of sums of more than 100%. And you thought you should only use pie charts when the slices add to 100%…

But will it work as a pizza pie?

Now I want pie. Thanks, xkcd.

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.
