Taking Diamond Jubilee Bunting to the Next Level

Taking Diamond Jubilee Bunting to the Next Level

I love bunting. And I love infographics. So whats better than a bunting infographic?

I thought this was a really clever way to combine digital data with celebration craft. The guys at Spreading Jam have been busy with a team of expert stitchers crafting this clever idea.

“Our inspiration came from all the naff jubilee trinkets out there we saw in every shop and street corner. Jubilee this and Jubilee that. From thimbles to thrones. Then we got thinking. An epiphany, a spark, a moment of genius: what if the data visualisation was actually a piece of memorabilia itself!?”

The buntings anti anxiety features spoof Royal Twitter accounts, a Jubilee party buzz map with the highest amount of buzz in red and a scale of the most popular types of naff memorabilia. Genius!

Well done guys, very impressive execution of a clever idea!

You can see images of the making of the bunting and the final designs on Pinterest.


There are some amazing Jubilee tutorials out there at the moment. looking for inspiration, give these a go -
