The following Data Design recapitulates the population of Geneva, Switzerland from 2012 till 2014 classified by its origin and its main spoken languages. The design is inspired by the classical bar chart, however, it takes it to a new level by focusing on the main subject of the data; the languages. The text that is used to illustrate the percentage of the individual’s spoken languages always represents an extract of the Wikipedia article about “Languages” in its corresponding language.
