I’m a big believer in data visualization.  Not only is a picture worth a 1,000 words, but a 1,000 data points at that.  My philosophy on creating an effective and affective visual display of information is that it has to be done in such a way that it could hang as a piece of art on your living room wall.  It has to have a meaningful aesthetic.  For example, take a look at the below infographic: Not only does it possesses a visual appeal, it also packs a punch in the information department.

For another great and inspiring collection check out the book Visual Miscellaneum by David McCandless.
