The importance of writing making-of articles in visualization

Our new visualization is out. This time we've collaborated with Maarten Lambrechts on a visualization about Eurovision, The Eurosearch Song Contest. Go take a look at it. It's fun.

Something we're asking everyone we collaborate with is to write a making-of article. We want this series of visualizations to be not only informative and experimental, but also be used as educational tools by instructors and beginners, either to praise them or to critique them.

Maarten's article is excellent, as it explains the design process and his choices in detail. It also includes some hand sketches. I have a soft spot for those.

You can see a gallery of all our previous projects here, and this article explains our goals. There are many more visualizations coming soon.
