During a design project for NYU Global Studies, we acquired 5 years worth of demographic data on their students who studied abroad. We wanted a way to communicate all the rich stories in the data set that wasn't a 60 page report no one would ever read. This is the result.
The top portion of the poster takes an approach of showcasing the most relevant data by geographic location. The bottom portion of the poster tells the other side of the story.
The final product prints about 3' wide by 5' high.
