Craft Breweries

From the Atlantic Cities, an offshoot of the Atlantic magazine, comes a nice Friday/for-the-weekend post. It looks at states that have the most craft breweries? Surprise, the states with the largest populations! But then comes the more interesting follow-up, what if we account for population differences? Ah, now we are talking. The visualisation type is a choropleth. Nothing fancy. But, hey, it’s a Friday. So bottom’s up. Cheers. Slainte. Salud. Enjoy the weekend.

I am a graphic designer who focuses on information design. My day job? Well, they asked me not to say. But to be clear, this blog is my something I do on my own time and does not represent the views of…my employers. I think what I can say is that given my 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 have become an amateur genealogist and family historian. You will sometimes see that area of work bleed into my posts.
