Motorway blocks

without comments

Yesterday, I was a passenger in a car on the autopista coming back from a nice small town called Huauchinango in the state of Puebla. We were behind a big lorry which, in that particular light, was just this white rectangle with a shadow underneath. I couldn’t see the wheels moving. It got me thinking, and I was trying to imagine vehicles as just blocks of flat colour. So I Photoshopped out the cars in an old photo (of the German autobahn) and drew blocks of colour where the cars had been.

London football teams

without comments

Not an infographic, rather an animation that uses data.

Basically, since the 1958-59 season, English football has had four top tiers. Prior to that, there were the first two divisions and two third divisions: a north division, and a south division. Since that season, of the 92 teams in those four divisions, between 11 and 14 of them have always been London-based teams.

This animation uses the places of those teams within the four tiers and the colours of those teams to create an animation. The longer a team is in a specific division, the closer to the edge of the circle that team is.

Eleven drawings of eleven teams from every World Cup between 1970 and 2010. Over the next couple of months, we will see a lot of pictures and clips of the Brazils, Argentinas, Germanys, Italys; great teams from the history of the World Cup. What we will likely see less of is teams that were alright, pretty good, or a bit rubbish. These eleven drawings are of those teams.

Peru, 1970. Came second in their group, lost 4-2 in the quarters to eventual champions Brazil.

Scotland, 1974. Failed to get out of their group, despite have the same wins, draws, and losses as Yugoslavia and Brazil, who both progressed on goal difference.

Mexico, 1978. Lost all three of their group games.

England, 1982. Won all three of their group games, and drew both of their second round group games, thus failing to progress due to West Germany beating Spain in the other game.

Denmark, 1986. Great kit. Won all their group games, then battered 5-1 by Spain in the Round of 16.

Cameroon, 1990. Topped their group, beat Colombia in the Round of 16, and narrowly lost to England in the quarter finals, losing 3-2 after extra time.

Colombia, 1994. Lost all two of their group games. Tragically, Andrés Escobar scored an own goal in their 2-1 defeat by the USA, and was murdered back in Colombia two weeks later.

Romania, 1998. Won their group, lost 1-0 to Croatia in their Round of 16 game.

Nigeria, 2002. Winless in their group, losing to Argentina and Sweden, and drawing with England.

Trinidad and Tobago, 2006. The smallest nation to ever qualify for the World Cup, Trinidad and Tobago came bottom of their group, losing to England and Paraguay after a scoreless draw against Sweden.

Japan, 2010. Lost on penalties in the Round of 16 to Paraguay.

Anyway, you can see ‘em all here: http://flipflopflyin.com/partakers/index.html
