This image is one of my favorite projects from the past couple of years. I loved the original design, but it was a little off. this reworking of the concept, however slight I think shows off the data a bit better.
What are you looking at? Well this is an infographic showing the spread of coffee out of Ethiopia. what i love about this poster is the crazy spread and the exotic locals that coffee was cultivated in.
The data is based on Based on an image lost to my filing system. Which was a scan from an out of print book. So it doesn’t get more obtuse than this.
