Venn Diagram shows Tesla-SolarCity-SpaceX overlap

Venn Diagram shows Tesla-SolarCity-SpaceX overlap

Yesterday (June 21, 2016) Tesla Motors offered to acquire SolarCity for $2.8 billion in stock. Unless you pay close attention, you may not realize that these are both companies headed by Elon Musk. The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) has visualized the shared investors and board members with this clear Venn Diagram showing the overlap between his three companies: Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX.

The graphic helps put the merger news into context for the readers. The best infographics and data visualizations make complex information more approachable and understandable for the audience, and this one does that very well.

Found on TechCrunch, where you can see the design.

Since the SpaceX and Tesla circles alone don't have any distinct information in them they could easily be collapsed into one "SpaceX+Tesla" circle. Adding another circle doesn't add any more information. If anything it adds to a more crowded look, but the creator must have thought it just looks boring with only two interlocking circles ... just my opinion ;p
