Find out what goes into one of its poster-size prints in this installment of Start to Finish.

Pop Chart Lab, takes complex data sets and conveys them in a comprehensive but stylish way. We do info-graphics on posters, T-shirts, housewares, a lot of that grows out of our own interest. We try to think about, how can we evoke the sort of feel of the subject. And, what the product's going to look like, on a wall. We tried to fill in some of the white space with actual, pixels and sprites, from a selection of games. And it looked like, kind of a band-aid solution to making it, a little more visually interesting.

I think when people comment somewhere that someone had way too much time on their hands when they see some of our charts, that makes me feel good. That's a compliment, yeah.
