Danish Designer Takes Infographics Off the Page

One shortcoming of even the best infographics is that data visualization is still just a clever way of looking at numbers. Danish designer Peter Ornoft has taken infographics off the page, photographing representations of data in real-world context, with a recent series of charts on hot-button topics.

On his website Orntoft writes:

The project deals with data from a list of the social related interests of the Danish people. The list is the result of an opinion poll from a major consultancy company in Denmark. I have used the context of specific opinion polls within each interest to shape and design diagrams. By doing so the receiver understands more layers of information about the data.

The image above captures Danish sentiment about immigrants wearing symbols of their Islamic faith in public. Others deal with opinions on healthcare and the effects of gang violence.
