A different slice of the pie

As a designer, I’m always exploring new ways to display information as graphs and charts. I love the trend that is building a swell to design and uses of more visually creative infographics.

There is still a need, and rightly so, for more traditional infographics like the pie chart but that doesn’t mean it has to be the same old slices handed down over the generations. Here are 2 concepts I recently designed. Both will move forward with live copy and branded colors soon. Hope you enjoy and if you discover others you’d like to share than drop me a link. Feel free to share. Thanks!
