We have a ton of data in graphs--bar, line, etc. We've also got a few tables.
They're all currently quite amateur. We're actually looking for someone to take all of our current graphs/charts, and re-make them with a consistent, beautiful, professional feel. We're looking for a scheme that's understated, a bit academic, and minimalist.
We like the look and feel of Pew and Gallup polls (attached). If it helps, our book cover is also attached. The color scheme and font do _not_ have to match the cover at all, but orange is a theme for us. (Red and blue are also good given that we're dealing with a lot of left/right politics.)
Ultimately we want to find someone that can do all the graphs and charts in the book. The contest is a talent hunt.
We want to get a sense of what you can do with a few formats, so we have 4 graphics. Luckily, they're pretty simple graphs and charts, so the work burden beyond choosing the right theme should be pretty low.
We've attached 3 graphs and 1 table, and we'd like to see a package with all of them to see thematic consistency. What's included:
1) A bar graph we made in excel about Americans' top priorities from a poll.
2) A bar graph from Pew that shows political activism versus ideological extremism.
3) A line graph that shows a Gallup poll over time about gun control.
4) A table that shows a sampling of drivers of premature death.
(Note the 5th attachment is a draft book cover)
What's critical is that the designs not look like they're Pew or Gallup, nor just a standard MS Office output: we're very allowed to use their data freely, but not only do we want to avoid copyright infringement risks, but we also want to have our own fundamental style that's internally harmonious.
We'll need the raw versions of the graphs/tables you make for book design/layout, and just in case our editor wants us to tweak the chart titles, axis titles, etc.
