"How Much LEGO?" - A Infograph by Slime

so for my GD II class, we're having to create these infographics, which if you don't know, convey statistical information through visual means

the twist?
we had to do something personal to us :scream:

i looked around my room and thought to myself
"hey i think i might like lego a bit"
so i went ahead and used that

this is the end result

stats are from my brickset
apparently i'm a pretty big bionicle fan
who'dve thought

Question,
Misc?
What does miscellaneous entail exactly?

That is cool, in one of my classes we are writing personal statements, and it am trying to twist it using how I would format a post here or
Something like
That...

Misc is a collection of various themes that made up 1% or less of my collection, e.g. Board Games or City. It was just too messy keeping such small increments in there.

Really like the styling of it :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

What does Brickset count as a 'Minifig' that 15% of your Minifigs are from Bionicle?

I have all 6 Piraka and all 6 Inika.

Oh. I guess that tells me about how many minifigs you have, then.

A very well made graph. It conveys what it needs to nicely and is very colorful.

What is that one in the middle though?

Wait, the middle one looks familiar...
Lego magazine?
!
The board game!
Those were the pieces right?

I always thought they were the same molds as the figs, I didn't realize they were so tiny.

Cool chart, but the lack of all Ninjago content pains me.

Why are Mixels only 5%? It's only Okay if you have them all...

Pretty cool, The yellow is a bit hard to read tho.

Nice man! I've been learning info-graphics in graphic design class as well. What program did you use to create it? Illustrator?

Yeah, this was all done in Illustrator. :stuck_out_tongue:

Sweet! What tool did you use to create the 3D bar chart?

It was all pretty much done using the pen tool. To create that graph, I traced out a top view of a brick, then manually copied/pasted them how I wanted. Each one of those bricks is comprised of maybe 11ish objects.

Boi, sweet designs for the graphs. I think they convey the information quite well.
If uh, if you want to expand on your graph-making skillz, I know of a book you should read. Look up Edward R. Tufte and his book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.

Sorry, I just like good graphs.

Anyway, 222 sets? Dang son. Did you keep the boxes or something? There's no way I'd be able to count all the sets I have so precisely.
