If the World Were a Village of 100 People…

I found an interesting site today by Toby Ng with an intriguing project called “The World of 100.” The direct words from the website explain it better than I could:

“If the world were a village of 100 people, what would its composition be? This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in.”

These “postcards” have won many graphic design awards, and I think the content is truly fascinating.

There are many more that I didn’t include, so take a look at the site that I retrieved the images from. The posters really made me think, and I’m sure they’ll do the same to you!
