Yang Lui draws my admiration for the tightness, economy and clarity of this series of info graphics comparing men and women. Colour, composition and proportion are masterful, too.
The “messages” are stereotypical but they are clearly expressed and leap over barriers of spoken language. Or do they? Could we do without the little word cue “self-image”, for example? Would everyone know that the figures are looking in a mirror and not, say, at a sign or a poster?
