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).

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!

Meet The World, Infographic Flags


Meet The World is an infographic project that uses the colors of eight national flags to represent some of the current issues in the world.

Icaro Doria is Brazilian, 25 and has been working for the magazine Grande Reportagem, in Lisbon, Portugal, for the last 3 years. He is part of the team (with Luis Silva Dias, João Roque, Andrea Vallenti and João Roque) that produced the flags campaign which has been circulating the Earth in chain letters via e-mail.
I found the link to this on rc3.org.

GE Ecomagination Blueprint Ads

GE is running The Blueprint Series of five print ads combining photos with an overlay of infographics. This works really nicely because they kept the infographics relatively simple.

Motion Graphics: Ocean's Thirteen

Made by Mattias Berlamont as a class project, this quick video integrates text and simple animation to a scene from the movie Ocean's Thirteen.

Great job Mattias!

Crucial Memory Ad


Crucial Memory, has this ad running in Mac magazines right now. It's amusing, but not actually informative. The infographics aren't the real directions to install memory. Instead, its an infographic style that tells the consumer they will be happier if they install more memory. I like it because the infographic style adds credibility.

Social Media Building

Another infographic advertisement from Elliance.com to share around your office. How do the different Web2.0 services available today address the different needs within a company? An ideal graphic to share with the people in your organization that don't really understand how they can use these new web services.

Elliance is posting a weekly series of infographics on their site to help explain their services.

Superior Coffee


Another one from Beau and Alan Daniels at beaudaniels.com that I really liked. Superior Coffee is half blueprint, half illustration that helps communicate the Superior Coffee strategy of delivering a better coffee to customers and is used at trade shows. A good way to visually show the technical aspects behind a product.
