The information
In 2009, most of the spanish saving banks were about to merge. We wanted to draw the panorama of the sizes of the banks and the solvency, to start imagining which one were going to merge with which other.

The design
I used the bubbles because they are placed geographically. The spanish saving banks were owned by the regional governments, so the geographical component was important in order to understand the circumstances. The size of the bubbles shows the size (actives) of the saving banks. The color, the solvency.
