Which retail companies have grown or declined the most in the past year? This proportional area chart from VisualCapitalist uses the size of different “price tags” to compare the change in brand value of some of the biggest companies in the world from 2019 to 2020. The VisualCapitalist team sourced data from from the Kantar brandZ Top 75 Most Valuable Global Retail Brands report and is especially interesting as it illustrates how the world has adjusted their shopping habits during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Which retail companies are faring the best during the coronavirus pandemic?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that major online retailers such as Amazon and Alibaba have won big over the past year. Without the ability to shop in physical retail stores that had been deemed nonessential, online retailers such as Amazon were an easy choice for shoppers. Perhaps somewhat surprising is the pandemics biggest retail winner: Lululemon. The apparel company has always had a heavy focus on online shopping and their brand value has now grown 40% over the past year as a result. Other winners include Costco, Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, and other large, traditionally brick and mortar establishments which have found creative ways to stay relevant and profitable during these troubling times.

What are the biggest retail losers during COVID-19?

The retail brands that saw the biggest decline over the past year include specialty fashion brands such as The North Face, H&M, and Burberry as well as fast food and coffee restaurants such as Subway, Tim Hortons, and Dunkin’ Donuts. This can be due in part to compulsory store closures and an overall shift in consumer focus as people were stuck at home during lock downs. However, the fastest declining brand over the past year is Under Armour which has had problems dating long before the pandemic took hold. The company has seen a discouraging 34% drop in brand value since last year.

Only time will tell which companies will come out on top (and which might go out of business) by the time the pandemic comes to an end.

A World of Languages in One Visualization

Published

on

One of the most exquisite and elegantly designed visualizations I have encountered is this chart by designer Alberto Lucas López titled “A world of languages”, which explores the incredible diversity of languages spoken around the world. The thoughtfully chosen colors, spherical format, organic yet minimalist layout, and simple elegance make for a pleasing graphic worthy of being framed on the wall.

Did you know that there are at least 7,102 known languages that are alive in the world today? 23 of these languages serve as the primary form of communication for 4.1 billion people! The colors provide insight into the regions where the languages originate, which helps give a sense of the population, history, and power of these dialects. There are additional charts below the main feature that showcase the most popular languages being learned around the world, the number of countries in which the most prominent languages are spoken, and the distribution of living languages by country. It may come as no surprise that English is the most popular language to learn with 1,500 million learners!

This graphic also highlights the incredible linguistic diversity of Papua New Guinea. According to the chart, 839 languages are spoken in Papua New Guinea. Why is Papa New Guinea such a linguistic mosaic? There are many elements to Papua New Guinea’s abundance of languages, but one of the most fascinating factors is how the rugged landscape (with mountains, jungles, and swaps) keeps tribes isolated, which preserves their languages.

How can something so small be responsible for so many deaths? Malaria is easily spread by mosquito bites and is the main cause of these deaths. The second deadliest animal is near and dear to our hearts, the human. Humans are technically animals and they have been found to be the cause of 475,000 humans deaths every year. Your snake fears are founded as they are the third deadliest and responsible for 50,000 human deaths. The deadliest snake is the aggressive saw-scaled viper, which scientists believe is responsible for more human deaths than all other snake species combined. Man’s best friend unfortunately found itself in 4th place. Dogs kill 25,000 humans every year, with rabies cited as a main cause for these large number of deaths. The appropriately named Assassin Bug, the Tsetse Fly, and the Freshwater Snail all tied for the fifth deadliest animals. They were all found to be responsible for 10,000 human deaths each year. How do larger animals rank in terms of human deaths they cause every year? The shark and wolf bring up the rear of the list with just 10 human deaths every year. Lions and elephants claim 100 lives, while the hippopotamus is more lethal with 500 human deaths. The crocodile is the only large animal on the list to kill more than one thousand people every year. Do you have any newfound fears after seeing this chart of deadly animals?
