Patreon have great user relations and regularly do webcasts with the company's CEO, Jack Conte, and various teams members. During one of them I posted this graphic based on data i scraped from the website.
A couple of weeks later i got an email to set up a call with Jack. He liked the graphic and wanted to commission me to make two new ones for him. He wanted to show two versions of Patreon: 1) a version of 2015 where communities are disparate amongst a sparsely connected network, and 2) his vision for 2020 where the network is much denser. Jack wanted to use these pieces to show staff at Patreon in a presentation, but also to install them in the offices.
After a number of iterations and some more Skype calls, below is the 2020 version Patreon will be printing and displaying at their HQ in San Francisco. It's 36" x 36", and although i've not seen the print the feedback has been great.
