Toby Ng Kwong To is the Hong Kong based graphic designer behind the World of 100 series. Toby uses visual aids to convey some statistics about the world we live in, all while making the act of actually reading the statistics fairly fun.

This is a self-initiated project based on the scenario – If the world were a village of 100 people. There are a few different versions of this text in circulation about the world’s statistics. I found the data very striking and neatly summarises the world that we live in. So I used information graphics to re-tell the story in another creative way. I designed a set of 20 posters, which contain most of the information. I used simple vector graphics that related to a statistic in order to present the information in the simplest and most accessible way.

Definitely stop by Toby’s personal site for more great work by this artist.


  • Wow, was surprised to see that the same percentage of people have a college education as those that have HIV. These really put some of the world issues into perspective.
