The YouTube Flowchart
Karen Kavett is a graphic design student at the Rhode Island School of Design and she was inspired to create the So You Want To Watch YouTube flowchart after seeing the So You Need A Typeface flowchart by Julian Hansen.
I was really inspired by the So You Need a Typeface poster and figured, why not make one for which YouTube channel to watch? It was a bit of a bigger undertaking than I originally anticipated, taking about 3 days from start to finish. I began by making a list of everyone I’m subscribed to and other popular YouTubers I thought should be on it. Then I divided them into Vloggers, Musicians, and Everyone Else, and just went at making a really ugly graph showing all the different routes. I had to cut some people out since their channels were just too similar to others I had already used, so if you’re not on here please don’t feel offended. If I included everyone I wanted to it would probably be about twice as big! Finally, I designed this final piece, which luckily, everything fit perfectly into.
Nice job Karen! I especially like the “Get out of my flowchart” endpoint!
