On The Map


Found on notcot.com, On The Map is a cool project by Stefanie Posavec that maps the rhythm and flow of literary works into some stunning visual posters. Breaking a story down into chapters, paragraphs, sentences and finally individual words. Then color coded to capture the topics as they reappear throughout the story. The level of detail is really impressive. Click the images to see the high-resolution images from notcot.com.

Thanks Jonathon and Jason for sending the link.

Stefanie also created a number of additional visualizations of the same story.

Name that Color

From blog.doloreslabs.com, they showed 1,300 different colors to people on Mechanical Turk, and asked them to name the color.

The above picture contains about 1,300 colors and the names for them that Turkers gave. Each is printed in its color and positioned on a color wheel. Just looking around, there sure seem to be different regions for different names. But there are also rich sets of modifiers (”light”, “dark”, “sea”), multiword names (”army green”), and fun obscure ones (”cerulean”).
They also created a Color Label Explorer tool to only show those color names that match your search term, but still keep them in place on the color wheel graphic.

New York Talk Exchange


Currently on exhibition at MOMA, The Museum of Modern Art, from Feb 24th - May 12th is an exhibit called "Design and Elastic Mind". New York Talk Exchange is included as part of the exhibition.

New York Talk Exchange illustrates the global exchange of information in real time by visualizing volumes of long distance telephone and IP (Internet Protocol) data flowing between New York and cities around the world.
Thanks Oliver!

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.

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.
