Germany Is Sixty Years Old - Golden Section Graphics:
For the 60th Birthday of Germany, Golden Section Graphics produced this giant infographic for 23/05/2009. The poster shows the most important demographic and economic changes over Germany’s life, since the Federal Republic of Germany was created in 1949. The number of inhabitants has almost doubled since it was founded.
The poster is a great homage to the country, using meticulous points and line length, and uses the black, red and yellow of the flag. At first glance the information looks unbearably complicated, but it is only when you start looking at the individual graphs and charts within the overall image you can see Golden Section Graphics’ beautiful handling of data, type and graphic design.
The infographic has a real presence on the page and immediately, through its visual language, can be considered as fact and accurate data. For more of Golden Section Graphics’ work, head over to their website here.
