Drawing clear lines
Jan 05, 2006
Still traveling but look what I found: a clear, impactful line chart showing how exploding local (provincial) spending in China could become a huge liability in the future. The designer chose a long time line (20 years) and the right chart depicts wonderfully how the finances in the provinces rapidly deteriorated from 1993 onwards. The labeling of the axes is also sensible.
