Distressed Communities Index

 

The team at the Economic Innovation Group (EIG), came to Graphicacy with a need to bring their Distressed Communities Index Report to life, taking the important data behind the report and making it interactive, allowing users to intuitively explore how their geographic region compares to those around them.

Graphicacy’s team of skilled information designers and data visualization engineers worked to intuitively communicate key data related to economic well-being at the zip code, county and congressional district level in order to provide a detailed view of the divided landscape of American prosperity. Our team accomplished this through the use of an interactive landing page, a customized Mapbox map as well as other chart views allowing for distribution and demographic comparisons.

 

Graphicacy’s collegial and talented team brought a truly massive dataset to life with a beautiful interactive map and data explorer tool. They lead the industry, and they helped us lead ours too..” — Kenan Fikri, Research Director, EIG

 

EIG’s DCI is an example of how Graphicacy partners with leading organizations to bring print reports to life, telling the visual story of the data.
