Site of the Day: election.twitter.com

Twitter election interface

While we may not agree about who to elect, we can hopefully agree that this mini landing page on Twitter is well-done. When you’re designing a site with lots of raw data, it’s easy to let basic functionality get in the way of creating something visually compelling. That’s not the case here: The data is presented in a beautiful way that reminds me of a design project in college where we had to present a large amount of data in a visual way (I guess we were actually making infographics). The flow of this page is beautiful, and it has just enough interactivity to allow the user to understand the data without having to work too hard.
