Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Pop Chart Lab produces engaging visual taxonomies, cartographies, compendiums, charts, and graphs. There’s something so satisfying about seeing strange data organized visually. Topics covered include The Illustrious Omnibus of Superpowers (featuring 300 heroes, anti-heros, villains, and beasts), The Diabolical Diagram of Movie Monsters, the Periodic Table of Heavy Metals (covering 303 head-banging bands), The Evolution of Video Game Controllers, and The Myriad Monikers of Gotham’s Villains, to name a few. Shown here are some full and detail shots. Fullscreen zooms available on their site.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
