State of the Union Data Visualizations

Series of data visualizations about each president’s first State of the Union address, from Wilson to Trump. One illustrates declining reading levels of these speeches while additional graphics visualize the prevalence of different words among speeches. Bold, high-contrast typography feels exciting and authoritative while patriotic, saturated colors are lighthearted and modern.
