A few weeks before my own wedding, I spoke with a good friend, Raj Kamal, who also happens to be one of the world’s best information designers. We discussed the upcoming wedding and I complained about how complex it is to plan such a big event (we had more than 300 guests!): from picking the right location and choosing the best food, flowers and DJ, to arranging the seating chart, and so on.
What did Raj say?
“You forgot the infographic!”
“What infographic?” I asked.
“Come on man,” Raj said. “You’re a founding member of Visually, and there is so much data related to you and your wife-to-be… are you not going to visualize it?”
And so he did:
The infographic tells the story of the bride and groom, their family trees, how they met and their first date and their life journey till the moment Tal proposed. The infographic is also packed with inside jokes and other things that close friends and families would appreciate. What a great idea for a wedding!
See, infographic can still be cool! Read more about it at Tal's blog post over at Visual.ly
