Singapore data: development indicators of a country
As an assignment as part of my Masters in Information Design and Visualization at Northeastern University, I was required to represent a series of human development indicators for the country Singapore.
Singapore proved to be an interesting challenge because it's a very small country surrounded by very large nations, and yet it's still highly developed and unique in certain ways.
The result was a 32 x 24in (81 x 62cm) infographic with eight main categories, including information about population, geography, trade and history, among others.

Other charts were completed with the aid of d3.js:
