Can I buy a PDF version?

Sorry, due to copyright issues, I do not offer electronic versions of my charts. No exceptions.


Who designs the charts?


My name is Matt Baker and I live in Vancouver, BC. I’m both the owner of UsefulCharts as well as the designer of the posters. I’m also a former teacher and I hold a PhD in Education from the University of Warwick.

I’ve loved charts and visuals ever since I was a kid and my goal is to help other visual learners by creating awesome wall charts, mostly about history.

When it comes to the products I sell, I go for quality over mass market appeal. My charts are printed on thick, art-print quality paper using an eco-friendly process. The inks are specifically designed not to hurt the environment and the company that does the printing is carbon neutral.

As a one-person business, I do relatively small print runs and often make changes based on feedback I receive. Therefore, please feel free to email me with your comments and ideas.

I’m also very active on Twitter, where I regularly post interesting charts from around the web.
