Watchman's Note

This is a journey to the best designs in the world of Zazzle.com. Handpicked and presented (along with my own artwork) by yours truly, the driving force behind Surreality designs. We'll discover great artists and special products -mostly with a taste for the eccentric. But let us not confine ourselves in specific genres: the possibilities are endless and so is the great art one can find at Zazzle.

Pie charting

Here's a design (by yours truly, the Surreality Watchman) toying with the omnipresence of pie-charts and our feelings about them. Funny, in a weird sort of way -even if I do say so myself.
My personal feeling on this subject?Statistics can -and often do- tell lies and our fixation with infographics and data visualization (especially those found on horrid PowerPoint presenations) has gone a little bit too far. Maybe this ironic design can be a way of showing that you agree!

  1. Dear Sir,

    I have the pleasure to brief on our Data Visualization software
    "Trend Compass".

    TC is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated
    way by displaying in one chart 5 axis (X, Y, Time, Bubble size &
    Bubble color) instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could
    be used in analysis, research, presentation etc. In the banking
    sector, we have Deutsche Bank New York as our client.

    I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas
    are there.

    You can download a trial version. It has a feature to export
    EXE,PPS,HTML and AVI files. The most impressive is the AVI since you
    can record Audio/Video for the charts you create.

    All the best.
