This is an example of Information Design on the US data consumption daily.  Information design uses visual representation can express it’s meaning more clearly to the viewer.

The logo I picked for positive and negative space was the USA Network logo.  The ‘u’ and the ‘a’ and made so that the ‘s’ is filled in between them. I feel that the logo is simple and very effective.  The logo was designed by Peloton Design, in 2005.
