Envisioning Information

From the AIGA Archives: Election maps, The New York Times is a nice recap of The New York Times’ information design take on the 2000 elections, which yielded a much divided view of the country, but not necessarily the red states vs. blue states image most of us expected. The map-based charts showed dark blue urban centers surrounded by expanses of pink and red rural areas, which dotted the geographic majority of the country.
