A rumour (or a stereotype?) that education of an average American is not at the highest level, to put it mildly, has taken a form of Infographics. London-based designer Yanko Tsvetkov, through his site alphadesigner.com, used this form to represent how Americans see the world. The infographics maps are hilarious and thought-provoking prejudice at the same time. It even goes so far to show how other countries see the world and not just Americans
Yanko Tsvetkov uses social, cultural and political stereotypes to label some parts of the world. Parts of the world is correctly used syntagma since there are no precise borders like on ordinary maps; it’s more like a vaguely defined area that got its label based on very few incomplete information.
Perception of the world of an average American is most often represented in Tsvetkov’s infographics, but other nations got their portion as well. For example – The U.S.A’s map labels Russia as a communist stronghold, while Britain’s map labels Ireland as an island full of rascals. You see where Yanko is heading, right?
You might take a look at the gallery below of the collection of designer Yanko Tsvetkov infographics (he has received international acclaim for his maps, which have garnered millions of views) no matter in which part of the world you are living. They will make you think, that’s for sure. Laughs are also guaranteed, but you must promise that you will not get mad if one of these silly jokes is on you.
