Where is the Best Beer in America Infographic

This is our second featured infographic on alcohol, (see our wine infographic) and this one has bit more graphic and little less info, but it still rates highly on our visual appeal scale. It can be difficult to use a map in an infographic, especially when every state figures into the equation, as in the case below, but the artist has done a nice job to simplify the data. While this infographic is confusing at first glance, the bar graphics are done well enough that you are rewarded with some interesting facts after a few seconds of focus. This infographic isn’t a simple task in organization set up for the general reader, it is more for the beer enthusiast who is willing to take some time to learn more about where to find the best beer in America.

Texting While Driving Statistics Infographic

This infographic covers a hot topic, texting while driving. As mobile phones have become an everyday accessory (and practical necessity), their capabilities have gone beyond calling to allow for texting, emailing and internet surfing. Have you ever sat at a stoplight and counted the number of drivers who are talking on the phone?

Now imagine how many are taking their eyes off the road to text – and how many of them are inexperienced teen drivers. The statistics show that texting is more dangerous than talking on the phone, speeding and even drunk driving, as the infographic illustrates. Yet so many people text while driving and assume it isn’t as dangerous.

Laws are coming up faster than a police cruiser in the rear view mirror to stop texting behind the wheel and it is a good thing; we can’t sit by idly while careless drivers continue to cause car accidents because they couldn’t put down their mobile phones. Play it safe and put the mobile phone down while driving, or you may need a good traffic attorney, a doctor or a hearse. Infographic designed by Big Oak Studios

Twitter Users Profile Infographic

Satire and the Internet make great friends. And the newest Internet sensation to be targeted is Twitter. While many blogs make fun of twitter you must admit Twitter does have a larger group of followers. Of course, how many are actually paying attention remains to be seen. In any case, this Twitter Infographic tries to show the different types of twitter users out there, with a humorous twist. Using the twitter mascot was a clever ploy and adds a visual interest many infographics with their overuse of circles seemingly choose to ignore.

Can I Afford an iPad?

The iPad will hit stores in spring 2010. While Johnny McLameperson whines about what features it’s lacking, make no mistake: he’s hawking your spot in line at the Mac store for the launch day. That being said, you’re gonna need to come up with $729 for the midrange 3G iPad. Here’s a look at what you’ll have to do to earn the scratch to get one.

A coffee barista has to make 8,526 drinks to earn enough tips

Tip your barista for your MochaChocaLatteFrappe. They’re counting on it. On average, baristas make $1.71 per hour in tips. If they made about 20 drinks an hour, they’d have to make 8,526 drinks to earn enough tips to pay for the iPad.

The world’s fastest pizza maker, making minimum wage, has to make 15,000 pizzas

Here’s something to aim for: the world record for pizza making stands at 15 pizzas in 6 minutes (pepperoni, if you were wondering). At this pizza-making rate, a student making the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour would have to make 15,083 pizzas to earn enough money to pay for an iPad.

A waitress at a casual dining restaurant has to serve 211 two-tops to earn enough tips

The average check at a casual dining restaurant is around $23 for a party of 2. With 15 percent gratuity, a waiter or waitress would have to serve 211 tables of two to make enough money in tips to pay for an iPad.

A mason has to lay 4,950 bricks.

A mason can lay, on average, 1,200 bricks per day. With an average hourly wage of $21.74, he’d have to lay 4,950 bricks to earn enough money to pay for an iPad. That’s just four days’ work.

Steve Jobs has to move iPhones for 52 minutes.

You know what there isn’t an app for? Being a mega-bazillionare. In 2009 Apple moved 4,363,000 iPhones. In that same year Steve Jobs made $7.3 million. That’s about $1.65 for every iPhone sold. So to buy himself an iPad (though he doesn’t have to, you know, because he made it) Steve Jobs would have to move 484 phones, which he’d do in about 52 minutes.

Peyton Manning has to pass a football 8.4 inches.

Peyton Manning makes $14 million per year. Super Bowl notwithstanding, in the 2009 regular season he completed 4,500 passing yards (totaling 162,000 inches). If you divide his salary by the number of passing inches, he would need to pass the ball a little more than 8.4 inches to make $729. And just in case you’re wondering, a football is 11” long.

Bill Gates’ heart has to beat 10.5 times.

Bill Gates might be a PC, but he’s laughing about the commercials… all the way to the bank. Last year he made an estimated $2.64 billion (or $83.65/second). What else happens in a second? Well for starters, the average human heart beats 1.2 times. Bill Gates’ heart only has to beat 10.5 times to make enough money to buy an iPad.

Will Smith needs to make .2 seconds of a movie

Will Smith made $45 million off the movies “Hancock” and “7 Pounds.” These movies had a combined run time of 190 minutes (3 hours, 10 minutes). That means he made $3.95/millisecond. He’d make enough money for an iPad .2 seconds into either movie. Is that even possible? Maybe he’ll buy us one too.

Pearl Divers to Squid Eaters – Diving the Depths

Natural pearls, the kind of pearls harvested from oysters by pearl divers, came in a variety of shapes and sizes – and were difficult to find – making them expensive and rare. Cultured pearls, those produced with the help of human intervention, were pioneered by the Japanese with Mikimoto patenting his technique for producing spherical cultured pearls around 1916. Today the vast majority of pearls sold are cultured pearls because they are easier to produce and are less expensive than natural pearls.

Drink Wine on a Budget – Wine Infographic

How to drink great wine on a limited budget. This wine infographic presents information to the wine drinker on which wines are best when shopping on a budget and your wine knowledge isn’t up to par. High quality photography, especially when shooting food and drinks is crucial. And using actual items and not drawings adds to the believability and and trust factor for this graphic.

Adding what to food to eat with each wine as well as the characteristics of the wine help make this infographic stand out from a content point of view as well as a visual point of view.

My only minor complaint would be the size of the wine labels. Identifying the labels better would allow for better recollection when finding these wines at the store. Other than that, great wine, great infographic. Cheers!
