The Crisis of Credit Visualized

The Crisis of Credit Visualized from Jonathan Jarvis on Vimeo.

Video by Jonathan Jarvis, makes sense of the credit crisis.  HD version is available at

The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.


  1. Hello Randy,

    Thanks for the video !! I blogged about it and added my own version of the crisis story with a selection of charts ...


  2. Truly excellent!

  3. What you say is true, but you forgot about the Congress coercing banks to make loans to poorer people and you forgot about Greenspan raising the interest rates by 4% in a very short time. These items were impetuses for the whole credit mess.
