Approach to Creating Experiences


Found on Think>Draw>Make, the Approach to Creating Experiences is from David Armano from the very influential Logic + Emotion.

It’s a high-level attempt to document an approach to designing an interactive experience within an agency setting.

Sprint Ad infographic video


Great infographic video ad for Sprint Nextel by Superfad.

What to do when you are stranded in the woods with the eminent danger of a bear just around the corner? Just use your Sprint Nextel phone to call for help. Superfad brought this case study and others to life. Watch how real people use the Sprint Nextel Direct Connect system to get the job done right.
Found on See What You Mean, an infographic blog I just learned about. Thanks Richard!

Outdoor Pictogram Headlines


Neat experiment by Dave Bowker over at Designing The News. The idea is to use pictgraphics to visualize news headlines in public places. Specifically in Europe, you could establish a universal set of icons over time that people who speak different languages could interpret and understand.

Microsoft HealthVault Xplaned


Microsoft enlisted our friends from Xplane to help visualize the theory behind the HealthVault system.

I would almost call this a 3D mind map the way it’s laid out.

Where Does the Money Go?


From the nytimes.com, this graphic visually represents how average consumer spending breaks down, and the color code shows how much spending in that category has changed in the last year. For example, Gasoline is 5.2% of an average consumer's spending, and it has risen 26% from 2007 to 2008.

As far as I can tell, this is actually a treemap, but in a new shape. More details pop-up when you mouse over each of the individual shapes.

Thanks to Tony, for sending in the link.

Fostering Innovation at Pixar


Only a little bit off-topic. This is a great interview with Brad Bird from Pixar on how they build an environment for innovation. The lessons apply to movies, product development, design and of course designing infographics. Lesson Six is my personal favorite!

What if the only things you could see in the world around you were brands and advertising? No walls, no people, no sidewalks...just ads. Apparently it would be more than enough to get around in the world.

This is an awesome video! Thanks to pascal for submitting the link in the comments to an earlier video post: See The World in Words
