Info-graphics / Data Visualization
I thought the combination of research and design was really neat. This is a graph/chart that illustrates how people spend their time online. It is easily readable while more or less humorous. I want to apply how clean and legible this piece is to my own project. I want to ensure that my project is not difficult to read or cluttered, but rather having a simple piece, and possibly using the same method of reinforcement on the right hand side with the listed categories just for more clarification.
I really enjoyed how creative, colorful, and interesting this piece is. It's a map of the major cities, all intertwined and connected, creating a really wonderful piece that keeps the eye moving and interested in it. I want the same effect to be translated into my own project.
This is something utterly fun and possibly useful. For a confused or blocked typographer, this would be an interesting way to go about choosing a typeface. Even if not in such a predicament, it is a fun tool to use that has so many possibilities and leaves one looking for hours. I want to have the same effect. I want to create something that is not only humorous, but possibly useful in the real world.
