LEGO Brick 50th Anniversary Timeline

Neat timeline of the 50-year history of LEGO bricks. The photos of the bricks as they were in each time period really makes this a great timeline. Plus, LEGOs are just fun.

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.


The Timeline of "Cool"

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


How many employees does Google have?

Search Engine Optimization

Elliance.com is posting a weekly series of infographics to help explain and advertise their SEO services. These graphics talk directly to corporate individuals that want better websites, but don't design websites themselves.

A great way to use infographics to talk to your target customers, and I think it shows how well Elliance knows their target audience.

Thanks Christy!


Golf Terms Explained

Humorous infographic that visually explains some of the common golf terms from Beau and Alan Daniels at beaudaniels.com, where you can find a number of good examples of their infographic work.


The Price of Gasoline

This image was real popular on Digg.com this week. It's hosted on tinypic.com, but there's no author listed.

I love simple infographics like this that use a visual metaphor to instantly get the point across. You can tell someone that the price of gas is comparable with Coke, but putting gas in the Coke signature bottle will get more people to understand the message.

My own reaction was probably the opposite of what the author intended. My first thought is "Coke costs how much?!?" I know there is a lot more expense in producing gasoline than there is in producing Coke. They must really be marking the price up a lot for brown sugar-water.

There is a similar analogy in the U.S. regarding bottled water. Some bottled water brands are now more expensive than gasoline! How is that possible?!?


Digg These Pics

Really cool new feature over on Digg.com. Back in late 2007, they added an Images category so users could digg their favorite pictures. Now they've added an interactive image viewer in the Digg Labs that lets you see new images and pictures being dugg in real-time.

The only thing I don't like is that it doesn't let you add any search terms. You have to see all of the activity, and can't narrow it down it all.


Cool Color Fading Calendar

I don't think this is an actual product, but a concept from the mind of designer Shi Yuan
from his website. The ink is light sensitive, so it fades slowly over the course of a day, eventually disappearing by the end of the day.
