Debt Spiral

August 17, 2011

I was thinking about visualizing debt. I previously showed my debt to income ratio with some boring bar graphs. I thought this might be more visually interesting. The lighter color is in my income as a percentage of the whole darker blue which is my debt. I think the title is appropriate, as is the sense of despair most of us feel about our debt. What do you think, does it do a good job at visual communication?

    You left out the flames. Red for debt, black for up. Yours looks like a lollipop from Candyland. Maybe you are trying to make it be all cheery rather than despair hell?

    Well I was actually going for a lollipop look. Sickeningly sweet from the carnival of doom. But I like your suggestions better.

    It needs more numbers for strangers like me to geek over : )
