Christian Behrens, a Berlin native, created this website of information design patterns for his masters thesis at Postdam University of Applied Science. The website is a web-representation of content he has formatted into book form, and judging from the screenshots on his site of the book he’s rocking the design of the printed matter.

Christian’s website has a Flash based interface akin to Color Brewer or Type Brewer for picking what visualization should be paired up with what data. Each visualization includes a Fact Sheet with a description, general layout, implementation, and real-world example.
