Joris Maltha and Daniel Gross are a duo of designers that make up Catalogtree, a company which likes to highlight information about life that would probably otherwise go unseen. Through their designs they visually represent odd facts like the largest urban areas by population or the top 1000 frequently occurring American surnames split in the six most common population groups.

Last year they did the two visualizations above for SEED Magazine, featuring the amount of parking tickets incurred by foreign diplomats and an idea for a genetic profile card using chromosomal positions. Really neat stuff, be sure to click here for more info.
