I applaud the creativity used and out-of-the-box presenting of complex information. Take this for instance — an org chart. Typically they are presented in a linear fashion from top-down (pyramid) to left-to-right (flow). This circle is another way to present the information that communicates in a unique way both emotionally and philosophically.
Others, like Common Craft, are using video and illustration to communicate complex issues in a simple to watch and understand format. Interestingly, the creativity and innovation used to create this kind of content is by no means simple. It takes hard work to find the right method and format to communicate complexity.
