Gold is a rare but durable precious metal. On a global scale a third of all circulating gold can be labelled recycled. Gold is traded via direct transactions and various derivatives. The market operates around the clock. Gold is has traditionally been considered a stable investment, and allows for example, hedging against inflation. Current market prices are determined on a daily basis, based on a wide range of gold instruments, derivatives, and physical gold combinations.
Based on an extensive analysis of data from various sources, in collaboration with Sanoma’s publishing team and Nordea Private Banking, we designed a detailed information graphic explaining the gold phenomenon globally. Our collaboration, with Sanoma (Head Office Finland) and Nordea Private banking, continues to push information design and visual journalism further as a means of efficient communication.
