Olympic Rings world inequality infographic | iainclaridge.net


Oceania: blue. Europe: black. Americas: red. Africa: yellow. Asia: green.

Oceaniaeuropeamericaafricaasia by creative director, Gustavo Sousa, uses the Olympic Rings to illustrate world inequality, depicting stripped-down statistics from each of the five world regions, through simple scale shifts of the Olympic’s iconic quintet of overlapping loops.

I would have been mortified if my neighbor complained about me/to me. ... via iPhone ...
