138 years of popular science by Jer Thorp

Jer Thorp walks through his process of how he created a recent visualization for popular science magazine. Part of his process that I find interesting is he says, “This is a really common approach for me to take – building small tools during the process of a project that help me solve specific problems.”

Another interesting point is that is says, “My working process is riddled with dead-ends, messy errors and bad decisions – the ‘final’ product usually sits on top of a mountain of iterations that rarely see the light of day.”

Part of what I love about design is it is about exploring and allowing the process of solving the problem to be organic.
