Ocean's Thirteen infographics

I can't upload the video (for obvious copyright reasons), but the movie Ocean's Thirteen uses some cool infographics to show the real-time winnings at each table in the casino.


Steve Jobs photo mosaic from Apple products

This one is just fun. Steve Jobs portrait photo mosaic made from Apple products and icons from OS X. Another version of this from the same artist was used in the March 17, 2008 issue of Fortune magazine.

I thought this was really cool!


Design Journal interview

Design Journal is the magazine for members of The Society of News Design (SND). The Editor, Jonathon Berlin, approached me a while back for a quick interview to include in an upcoming issue. The interview was just published in the Winter 2008 issue (#105), which has a whole theme about data and graphics.

Unfortunately, the magazine is for members of SND only. However...

...Jonathon also published most of the interview on the SND Update blog, so you can read the interview online.

Jonathon, thank you very much for the visibility and the press!


The Calculators of HP poster

From the The Hewlett Packard Calculator Page.

This poster shows every HP calculator made starting with the famous HP-35. Each calculator is displayed with it's production start and end data, and it's project codename.
It's amazing how many of these I have actually used. This is similar to the Evolution of Apple Design...but with more buttons.


What if...

Craig Robinson, from flipflopflyin.com, has created a graphic showing many of the different paths/branches his life could have taken. Clicking on each character icon reveals text describing the event or deviation from actual events.

Who hasn't at one time or another wondered how their life could've gone in other directions if different events had occurred or different choices been made? These are the ways my life could've deviated from its actual path (the top row).
" Craig dies at the age of 34, killed by an angry swan" I found incredibly funny.

Lance's Last Tour

I found two good newspaper infographics from 2005 covering Lance Armstrong's last Tour de France on newsdesigner.com where you can get larger PDF files that make good posters. Both are two-page graphics (doubletrucks). The first is from The Oregonian (above), and the second is from the St. Pete Times (below).

Classifying Experiences

Stephen Anderson is an "experience architect" at Sabre Travel Network, and has created a poster to communicate how people Sort, Classify, and Label Experiences. Read Stephen's blog post explaining his efforts.

Infographics for Advocacy

I got a note from John Emerson, the author of Visualizing Information for Advocacy, and I wanted to share that his booklet on using infographics for NGO's and advocacy organizations is now available online as a free PDF (6.9MB) at apperceptive.com. Although geared to advocacy groups, the information is definitely relevant to everyone.

John also has a blog post up on Social Design Notes.

Outstanding job John!
