“5,485 names are contained within this visualization on the DopeTracks one-year anniversary poster.”
I was commissioned to brainstorm and develop an image for the DopeTracks.com one-year anniversary commemorative poster that incorporated the names of all of their active users.
While primarily designed as a means of displaying the names of all of the active users, I quickly realized it could be treated as a simple data visualization as well:
5,485 unique users, each with a ranking and a date they joined the site.
Size indicates relative popularity on the website (lower on the poster signifies higher rankings).
Color maps to the date of the year (newer users are brighter).
I also assisted on an interactive Flash version that allows a user to submit their name to magnify/find their location on the poster.
