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!
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.
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 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.
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, 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.
Found on Wikipedia, this is the timeline of what was "Cool" from 1500 A.D. through today. Apparently, the Beatles aren't cool anymore...
