FIFA World Cup Infographic

2010 FIFA World Cup Infographic

With the Football (or is it Futbol?) World Cup underway, the fever has set in big time and everyone seems to feeding off it. The folks at FusionCharts.com picked up stats from previous world cups and put together an infographic using their stunning charts.

While a lot of the statistics shown in the infographic are common info (done pretty neatly though), it brings to light some interesting numbers as well. For starters, the fact that the world cup winners have been from only 2 continents, South America and Europe, both at 9 apiece. Also, the figures for Goals For and Against by the winners clearly brings out the attacking nature Brazilian football has had throughout history. The infographic also brings out the highest scoring games at the World Cup till now. The home team as always is the most supported one, with South Africa having around 1.25 million fans who will be cheering for their team in the stadium. Spain and Brazil start as the overwhelming favorites as expected.

I would have like to see some more themed graphics included and less time spent on graphical bars in the graphs. The World Cup offers so many design ideas with the soccer ball, field shape, goal netting and crowd ethnicity, I think a design opportunity was lost here. Still, good numbers, good fun and a quick look at how big the FIFA World Cup games really are.

Santanna’s How to Throw a Changeup – Baseball Infographic

Santanna’s How to Throw a Changeup – Baseball Infographic

Sometimes infographics are used to teach rather than just present information in a format that is easy to “digest.” Of course, teaching you how to throw a changeup and doing it are two different things. But this infographic presents the instructions in a clear manner, with additional information on where it is best to throw the pitch.

Better infographics do more than just entertain and inform on the the focus on the pieces (how to throw a changeup), they also give a second (where best to throw the changeup) and sometimes third layer of information (how to identify the changeup if you are a batter) to engross you all the more. Batter up! This infographic is a homerun!

The Triple Crown

The Triple Crown

One of the most revered titles for any thoroughbred horse to have is the Triple Crown, which only 12 horses have won since it’s inception.  To acquire the title, the Preakness Stakes, Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes must be won,. This had not been done since 1978, making this an elusive title until American Pharoah won it this year. This a great achievement, and in the spirit of celebration here is an infographic from the online wagering site MyWinners.com, including some interesting facts about the title, its history and previous winners.
