Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations

Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it

Color is a crucial part of our visual experience. It indicates many things in our lives, from the ripeness of a banana, to how someone is feeling, to which subway line we should be on. Not everyone sees colors the same way, and colors have drastically different meanings in different cultures, but one thing we all have in common: color is important.

Matmi's insight:

A fascinating article delving into the psychology of colour, the emotional effects they can have, differences between cultures, how brands use them etc.


Includes the use some great infographics to explain the colour theory (or color if you are American).

'We Never Look Up' Is a Beautiful Tribute to the Tech Obsessed

'We Never Look Up' Is a Beautiful Tribute to the Tech Obsessed | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
We Never Look Up is a beautiful photography blog dedicated to capturing city dwellers lost in their technology, numb to the world around them.
Matmi's insight:

Stunning photographs of a world engrossed in their mobile devices. I wonder if they are playing Matmi games? The fact that these people are always fiddling away on their phones even when they are walking down the street demonstrates the massive amount of time people spend looking at their phones - time they could be spending interacting with your brand if you had a mobile game developed.

Creative Review - Orwell, covered up

Creative Review - Orwell, covered up | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
The best in visual communication
Matmi's insight:

Brilliant cover design as usual from David Pearson.


I love the 1984 cover, the simplicity speaks to the height of popularity of the book/brand too. There is no need for over designed over thought design here. Just a clear cut and precise message.


As others have said it may alienate people who have not read the book — but it's not the only cover in circulation and it's a book that appears on educational book lists all over.


I love Shepard Fairey's 2008 cover but a leaky flask of coffee destroyed that so I will now be picking this up asap.


Double plus good. ^ML

Hessian

Hessian | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
Hessian is an invader, an ode, a pitch to the market, a brand for sale.
Matmi's insight:

Could this be part of the future of branding, Selling ready made brands as a product?


For $18,000 you aquire the full brand pre made and ready to go out of the box. A brand should be built around the client — but what if 'Hessian' is perfect already for the client and speaks to people on the level they need it too? 


(Side note: Ben Pieratt mentioned he already has two interested buyers!)
