The Feltron Annual Report




full size



Who said data is cold and impersonal? Who said report sheets are boring?

Nicholas Felton (aka Feltron) is an information designer. Since 2005, he has tabulated thousands upon thousands of tiny measurements in his life and designed stunning graphs and maps and created concise infographics that detail that year’s activities. The results were originally intended for his friends and family, but the “personal annual reports” have found an audience with fellow designers and people that really geek out on seeing lots of data, beautifully presented.

In 2010, Nicholas Felton’s father passed away, and Felton decided to turn his annual report into a full biography of his father. He took 4,348 of his father’s personal records and created an intimate portrait of a man, using only the data he left behind.

When correctly displayed data can be beautiful and fascinating.

It's obviously a worthy and very personal project. But one sign of an ineffective infographic is just showing a bunch of numbers in a big font, and sadly there seems to be a lot of that going on here...
