How Our Laws Are Made is an infographic by Mike Wirth that won a prize in the US in a competition called “Design for America”, sponsored by the Sunlight Foundation (a “a non-profit, nonpartisan organization” with a mission to use “the power of the Internet to catalyze greater government openness and transparency”).

An infographic that creates a game-like atmosphere while maintaining an appropriate level of detail. A harmonious combination of complexity and pleasing visuals.

The project was a 2010 collaboration of New Media Design Professor, Mike Wirth and U.S. History Professor, Dr. Suzanne Cooper-Guasco from Queens University of Charlotte.
