Consumed is a project by Daniel Ridgway, in which he analyses his consumption of everything within a 24 hour time period. A really nice use of colour, photography & infographics. http://www.dandad.org/talent/new-blood/exhibition
Pentagram are celebrating their 40th anniversary since being founded today, and to do so have created a short film together with 40 posters representing each year. The posters are designed by the 19 partners of Pentagram and all use only black, white and red. Congratulations Pentagram!
The Arts Council & BBC have teamed up to bring us The Space (a new free digital arts service ). One of the launches that comes from this is the John Peel Record Archive which contains (or will contain once finished) an extensive collection of albums featured on the John Peel show. The site allows you to view the original album artwork, the tracklist and even listen to the album itself. Listening to Peel Sessions, viewing photographs and watching videos are also all part of the site. Wonderfully designed and a timeless piece.
Just something I had to share, absolutely brilliant. (I do have more creative talks on the way).
The people at Column Five Media have brought us a Limited edition infographic that varies dependant on the ‘owners’ intake of caffeine, mainly coffee. The idea was that they bring together two things that designers love-coffee and data visualisation. Basically you are given a monthly chart and you paint the blanks with your coffee, at the end you are able to see your caffeine trends. A brilliant interactive and personal idea!
