i am always inspired by new ways to visualize data through info graphics. 

IBM - Australian Open
 

The 'data ball' depicts IBM's ability to take mountains of information generated by each Open and present it in a multitude of ways to thousands of tennis fans. A one minute online animation was also created to illustrate the various types of data handled by the Open.  It was designed by Andrew van der Westhuyzen
