I added a textured background, and played around with the type at the bottom. I also added the winner!
Thank you all for your wonderful feedback.
I took your advice and looked at old boxing match posters, and drew some inspiration from those. I got rid of the other states and decided not to include that data as well.
I was thinking of adding a starburst shape above the 'most hurricanes' data and including a highest maxinum wind speed. I'm am unsure if I have included enough data layers or not, and thought a little POW! starburst would be a fun data addition.
Thanks again in advance for everyone's feedback.
I started with the 1st Data set. Looking at the data, I was intrigued with how few category 4 and 5 hurricanes there were. After then looking at only category 4 and 5 hurricanes, I noticed most have occured in either Texas or Florida.
Since 'Everything is bigger in Texas", I started to concept a title for that, and came up with Showdown: Texas vs. Florida. I want to give it a boxing theme, but I didn't want to go overboard on the theme, and distracted from the data (which is most important).
It's still rough in some places, mainly the bottom, which I am still working out. I also am debating whether to add information on Louisana, Georgia, and Souh Carolina, since they each have had one category 4 hurricane.
