Running Jokes in Arrested Development

Arrested development jokes

This is the second graphic of this type that I’ve seen this semester and I’m really curious how they made the interactive elements. I even have to doubt whether they use any specific software to generate this interactive graphic because I’ve seen a much similar one several months ago.



Here’s the graphic about migration flow across the world. It is also an individual website with almost same interactive function. I wonder could we open these websites with Dreamweaver and view its template?

How long is the average dissertation?

Average dissertation

As I’m still struggling with my graduate paper, I found this very interesting graphic from a WordPress blog. The blogger himself was also procrastinating on his own dissertation. So when people asked him  how many pages he left, he was not sure how to answer. Therefore he did these time-consuming graphics to procrastinate his paper again! But it is very interesting to see the result of his research in this way.

The only thing I don’t like about this graphic is that there is no key. I don’t really understand what the length of the bar, the line and the dot stand for.

Spotting a Hidden Handgun

Spotting a Hidden Handgun

After the New Orleans shooting during the Mother’s Day parade, I found this info graphic done by the New York Times to be beneficial for readers to educate themselves on how to point out possible gunmen. This graphic was made in 2010, but is still relevant today. It doesn’t give an excessive amount of information, but allows us to pay closer attention to avoid possible disasters like what occurred a few days ago.

Living like Gatsby

With the new Great Gatsby flick out, noted internet researcher and artist, Nickolay Lamm, came up with this pretty cool graphic illustrating how much money Gatsby would need to live in the modern day, and what kind things he’s spending the big bucks on (spoiler alert: parties).

Doesn’t seem completely right that Gatsby’s only spending $34 million, but maybe Lamm’s right. Either way, the illustrations are pretty cool, and the concept is awesome. I was thinking it was a little long at first, or maybe even a little text heavy, but it’s grown on me, and I’m a big fan of this particular graphic.

Summer Movie Ticket Sales



With summer coming up and many great movies getting released this summer, I wanted to find a graphic that address that and that is just what the LA Times did. They compared the summer season with others seasons as well as compared the more costly movies coming out as well. Lastly, they compared the domestic box office. I think this graphic does a great job in breaking down how much revenue summer movies bring in are expected to bring in. I wish the graphic could have been more visibly appealing. It has a lot of great information, but it screams boring. I would have somehow tried to somehow connect the movies coming out this summer within the graphics like a poster or something. This topic has so much great information just to be a bar chart.

Iphone vs Android

This post I found to be very cool and interesting especially since I, too, have done research on the differences between Iphones and Androids. I thought this graphic could have been pretty simple to make, and looks like something similar to our full page final projects. I love the colors and separations of the graphs. This graphic definitely gave me some inspiration while editing my final project. I also think its cool how they used the android and apple symbols for the use of “o” in the title :).
