Fun With Venn Diagrams: The Visually Venn-A-Gram

Visually

We wrote about how Venn diagrams aren’t just for fun, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t fun. Venn diagrams are simple to understand, and they make great material for a few laughs.

We decided to make a few at the Warmgun after-party on November 30th, so we threw a chart making contest with an iPad Mini for the winner!

We took all the charts back to the office, and had a voting party.

               

We’re happy to announce that Arno Hesse (@ahesse) who works for Clearbon (@clearbon) won the competition with his Dave McClure chart, and will be receiving an iPad Mini in the mail shortly! We’re also pleased to give an honorable mention to Kate Bagoy (@kbagoy) who works for Wikisway (@Wikisway). Her Movember chart came in second place by a one vote margin.

Venn-A-Gram

The pen and paper contest was really just a warmup though. We’ve been working hard on a fun project; a Venn Diagram Generator.

We’ve been extending the power of the Visually Create platform to include interactive creation tools. Nils Schlomann’s work on the Venn-A-Gram is a first step in that direction (stay tuned for more).

We hope you have fun playing around with the generator, and to start with, we’ve included a few fun templates as the backgrounds–But we don’t think this is enough. We would really like some designs from you!

        

We’ll vote on the best designs, and pick a handful of winners to build into the generator.
To submit your design, send a 1024×768 image to contest+venn@visual.ly. We’ll vote on the first round of submissions after January 7, 2013.
