The 85th Academy Awards In Numbers

Posted by Grey Sunday, February 24, 2013

Ahead of the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony, artist Sam Gibey is here to prepare you for the event with this cool infographic detailing some of the interesting yet little-known statistics of the nominees. 

With the 85th Academy Awards Ceremony around the corner, Oscar fever has officially hit its peak. Here to fill us in on some of the most intriguing yet little-known facts behind the nominees this year, artist Sam Gibey is here to provide us this handy infographic detailing some rather peculiar statistics of these films courtesy of Virgin Movies.

And from the words of the artist himself:

As you can imagine, I had lots of fun putting this one together, figuring out the composition and balancing out the design and typography with all the illustrations needed. 

Basically I created a nice tight grid to build everything on, and used various weights of Museo Sans (which is actually a typeface that Virgin used but it also just happened to be perfect for my needs) to bring it all together and add interest. With the wealth of information to be presented (in terms of the statistics themselves and the visual complexity), locking the palette down to black, white and red (and grey) seemed like a natural way to unite everything and ensure that it packed a punch. Huge thanks to Virgin Movies for letting me loose on such an interesting challenge.

Here are some cool snippets from the poster.
