Starting a project where you need to make a series of graphs or a visualization can be frustrating. One of the hardest tasks is to find a theme, a style which you want to use. Though minimalism is the dominate “style” in data visualization, there is a lot of approaches to any graphical approaches. So I’ve started a blog, Data Nouveau, to browse sources of influence for data projects.
It will mostly include graphs and data visualizations, but will also use other sources–such as art and movies–for ideas, such as color palette. Essentially, I hope it will serve as a sort of free style magazine for those starting new projects. I’m also accepting submissions of any interactive, static graphing style, data visualization project, or anything that might help someone choose a color palette, graphing style, or layout for their own project.
