An exploration into statistical displays on Kickstarter.com. For this endeavor we're pulling in Nicholas Felton, famed information graphic designer.
Hey there! We're on a mission to make Kickstarter better every day and we'd love your participation in our most fun-filled effort yet. We've asked infographic maestro Nicholas Felton, of the famed Feltron Annual Report and Daytum, to kindly help us turn our data -- like the stats you see on the upper right-hand side of this page -- into something more fun, exciting and intuitive; not to mention sexy as hell. If you're anything like us, infographics turn you on in a big way. We think they're super fun, and Nicholas knows how to whip them into shape better than anyone we know. If you're not familiar with his work definitely check out the links above -- but don't forget to come back :). Any money raised will be used to pay for Nicholas' time and brain-power, and will allow him to buy-back a miniature jade skull he was forced to sell when he lost his job as a Burmese cartographer. Please join us in this effort to make Kickstarter even cooler, and get some fun rewards to boot. Thanks for stopping by! (Examples from Nicholas Felton's 2007 & 2008 Annual Reports respectively)
