Between the poles

without comments

Two drawings of the areas between the foul poles at major league stadiums. I kinda like that this combines the idea of an infographic with “art.”

Bandstand

without comments

I’m starting a new ongoing project on the site today. It’s called Bandstand. Hopefully I’ll keep this going until I have done every single band that exists, has existed, and will ever exist. That last sentence is a lie. But I will do a lot more.

Flag proportions

without comments

Whenever a big sporting event comes around, every (EVERY!) Web site has to have lots of graphics of little flags. It’s kinda nice. I like flags. But, because of the way things are designed, lots of times, the flags are wrong, proportionally. The best, most obvious, example is Switzerland’s flag. It is a square not a rectangle, (although I guess a square is a rectangle). It got me thinking. And because I can’t think without drawing, here’s the proportions of all the flags of teams in the World Cup.

A couple of football infographics

First: one about the companies that made the kits worn by teams in the World Cup.

Second: an entirely untimely one about the Premier League relegation battle on the last day of the 2010-11 season.

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.

Bill and Ted

without comments

A couple of infographics today. First, one looking at the time travelling done by Bill and Ted in their Excellent Adventure. And the other one is only really of interest to me and my ego. It looks at the results of searching my name in Google Images. There are more famous Craig Robinsons than me.

Premier League 2013/14 infographic

without comments

I made a chart about the season that ended a short while ago. It looks at the title race, relegation and how ace Suárez and Sturridge were. As a Liverpool fan, it was the most enjoyable season in quite some time. Didn’t end quite the way one would have hoped, but, damn, it was fun.
